Artist Janis Saunders will be at Penn Cove gallery on December 19 and 27, where she will demonstrate methods of her woven art. Janis has been weaving for more than 30 years using a computer-assisted loom, which allows her to explore simple to complex patterns. Weaving with wool, alpaca, linen, silk, and rayon, her current patterned scarves and shawls are reversible, creating both a dark and light side. Each art piece is unique, sometimes starting with the yarn on hand or the weave structure in mind. Janis’ braided bracelets are made using a Japanese technique that she describes as a meditative exercise and an opportunity to create small studies in color and texture based on the world around her.
