PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Begin by learning basic tapestry weaving techniques and design. Then, create a miniature woven tapestry on a small frame loom. Techniques covered include warping the loom; color mixing and hatching; and how to create horizontal stripes, vertical lines, irregular shapes, shading and contour. Different types of interlock, such as a dovetail join and weft interlock join, are covered in addition to the techniques involved in Soumak weaving.

No experience is necessary. More experienced students are welcome to join and work on their own design.
