Tapestry Weaving: Painting with Fiber

Course Overview

Woven tapestries are said to bring the northern landscape alive through geometric, curved, representational, or abstract images. In this three-day class, you will assemble and warp a frame, then weave a small tapestry of your design using the North Shore landscape as inspiration. Proper mounting and hanging techniques will also be covered. Each student leaves with their tapestry frame, encouraged to continue the craft of woven tapestries in their own setting. This course is appropriate for beginning weavers as well as those looking to build their skill set.
