Introduction to Freeform Tapestry Weaving
Sunday, August 11, 2019
11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Have you been intrigued by the idea of weaving but feel intimidated by the formidable mechanics of the floor loom? Me too! Freeform tapestry weaving is an expressive, process-oriented way to explore traditional handweaving techniques to create a piece that is personal and unique. A standing tabletop loom enables us to incorporate a wealth of textures such as fluffy roving, long fleece locks, silk ribbon, cotton punis, and handspun art yarn. We'll learn how to set up the loom and plan a design. Using various weave structures and knotting methods, we'll discover how to achieve geometric shapes and contours. At the end of class, everyone will have completed their own sampler tapestry to take home.
No experience necessary. All equipment and materials will be provided. Participants are invited to bring any fibers or yarn they would like to include in their works.
