Introduction to Non-traditional Materials with Giovanna Imperia


Technology and demand for new and innovative fibers from many industries have pushed companies to develop unusual yarns ranging from materials not traditionally associated with the textile industry  — such as plastic — to surprising and interesting blends with metal, and ultra fine yarns to create transparent fabrics.  Many of these yarns are available in our Gevolve Line of yarns.

Come learn from Giovanna as she describes all sorts of creative opportunities with these non-traditional materials for those who are willing to experiment.

The lecture will be held via Zoom on June 18, 2022.  12-1 Mountain Daylight Time.

Giovanna Imperia

Giovanna is the author of “Kumihimo Wire Jewelry,” and has written many articles on braiding and weaving.  Her work has been shown in many juried and invitational national and international exhibits.    Selected work has also been reproduced in textile and jewelry books, and can be found in private and museum collections.

Giovanna’s work focuses on the exploration of tactile and organic nature of fiber while pushing the boundaries of the expected definition of body adornment and 3D objects.  This is accomplished by actively involving the user through the concept of “transformation” – the idea of actively engaging the user with shaping and transforming the art piece.  She is the creator of the Ombre Braided Necklace, and she will be teaching a seminar titled Weaving with Nontraditional Materials at Complex Weaver’s Seminar in July, 2022
