Elizabeth Buckley is a second-generation tapestry artist and has taught for more than 50 years. Her work has evolved from using techniques of the Mexican and Rio Grande traditions to those of French tapestry and from weaving with no pre-planned design to using a cartoon. She further honed her skills in Aubusson, France.
With her degree in art, Elizabeth brings to the classroom her deep grounding in design principles and color theory that specifically apply to tapestry and draws from multiple tapestry traditions to provide her students with the technique vocabulary for finding and expressing their own unique voice.
Elizabeth has taught at regional weaving conferences, retreat centers, and numerous weaving guilds around the United States. With the COVID-19 pandemic, she moved her teaching online. She is featured in recent publications including Micala Sidore’s The Art is the Cloth, Rebecca Mezoff’s The Art of Tapestry, and Tommye Scanlin’s Tapestry Design Basics and Beyond.
