(119) 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. This is an intermediate class, and we will cover a wide range of different techniques. Everyone will complete a sampler tapestry to take home.
Maximum Class Size:
