Taniko: Finger Weaving
Jun 08 | thu | 6:00PM - 8:00PM
A traditional fiber twining technique used by the Aboriginal people of New Zealand and American Indians of the Northeast and Alaska. Much like knitting, a taniko project can be worked on wherever the weaver goes. No equipment needed. Not even something as a knitting needle. All you need is you and your yarn. You can create works of art or make functional pieces such as bags, scarves, and small articles of clothing.
I never seem to get frustrated or stuck, I just keep moving. When things get difficult I just take a different path. Eventual, things always workout. Life is constantly evolving so I just go with the flow. Since I weave the way I flow through life, my weavings just evolve. I am surrounded by projects in progress and don't feel the pressure to complete them. They will get done, it just takes time. I don't waste time on frustration. I move on to something else; come back later. I use past experiences to build and grow with something new. Eventually, everything falls into place. I just continue with a steady pace. Sometimes I just wait for the reaction of the fibers to show me what to do next. Doris Florig's Website
