Designing a Tapestry and making it happen!!
This is a tapestry workshop about creating an organized step by step approach to designing and finishing a tapestry. How to design a tapestry from start to finish and discovering what you need to pull it off-technique, designing a cartoon, and weaving what you want to weave. It’s about sampling and
learning skills that go around and defeat the concept of I can’t draw, therefore, I can’t do tapestry. This is all about designing tapestry, deciding how it will be woven and the techniques you want to use to make it happen. –colour choices, techniques, etc. It’s my process for designing tapestries and making it happen. How do you make colour choices? What techniques can you use to design even if you don’t think you have the skills to draw a design? Students will design a small tapestry and weave a small sampler of techniques or a small portion of their design. Various techniques needed for the design will be demonstrated in class.
