Beyond the Basics: Creating Space and Manipulating Texture in Freeform Tapestry Weaving
Want to go beyond the standard "under-over" technique on your tapestry weavings? Let's explore some advanced closed-shed methods of creating space and texture! Lace techniques such as leno, bouquet, and wrapped warp create open spaces that add lightness and mystery to a design. We'll learn how to add dimension and depth with wrapped and pile weaves, and create subtle textural movement with various twill drafts.
At the end of class, everyone will have completed their own sampler tapestry to take home. All equipment, tools, and materials will be provided, including handspun yarn, hand-dyed roving, wool and mohair locks, eco-printed silk and wool gauze ribbon, linen paper yarn, and more. Participants are invited to bring any special fibers or yarn they might like to include in their works.
Required Skills: Some very basic weaving experience with a tapestry, or table, or floor loom required.
What experience level is the class: Intermediate
