knotless netting workshop

Pebble Pendant examples
Knotless Netting, or Looping, is an ancient technique using cordage to create bags, baskets and nets.  Judy Mulford and Donna Kallner are contemporary fiber artists who use this technique in their work.

Knotless Netting variations.
Mahota Studio and the ARTesian Gallery and Studios hosted PEBBLE PENDANTS in Sulpher, OK on June 24, 2016.  In this workshop, students learned the basic "loop" stitch, explored patterns and netted a pebble (or fossil) for a pendant.






Margaret Roach Wheeler, of Mahota Studio in Sulpher, OK, showed examples of netting impressions found in clay from Penelope Ballard Drooker's book, Mississippian Village Textiles.
