Pushing Tapestry with Susan Iverson

This class will give students the opportunity to investigate pulled warp, a technique that may be used to create shaped tapestries and 3-D forms. This little used technique has great potential for experimentation. Other ways of shaping tapestries will also be covered. Students will be encouraged to “play” with these techniques, that can then become catalysts for idea formation and development. Weaving will be done on floor looms and frame looms.

Curves in Tapestry with Elizabeth Buckley
Curves present unique technical challenges in tapestry. In this workshop we will explore several approaches to weaving curves as shapes, as well as lines. Participants can expect to become more familiar with empty and full warps, eccentric wefts, and shading techniques to depict shallow or steep curves, organic shapes, and meandering lines. This workshop will incorporate the use of shape-building and how to design weavable curves in tapestry, working from either the front or the back.

Materials Fee: $32.25
Deposit: $100.00 non-refundable to hold place.
