The Art of Tapestry Weaving Workshop
Weave with sumptuous fine wool yarns and learn tapestry techniques including hatching, slits, and patterns for combining colors. Begin with warping a small loom and choosing or creating a custom design. All experience levels are welcome! Tricia will have simple line designs available for beginning students to use. Experienced students may like to work ahead of time and come with an idea or drawing to use in their tapestry design. We'll begin with warping a small loom and choosing or creating a design for your paper cartoon to use as a guide during weaving. Looms, yarn, and small equipment will be available for use and purchase. Meets every day from Feb. 22 to 24. About the Instructor Tricia Goldberg has taught tapestry weaving for over 35 years.
