Experience the joys of tapestry on a loom you can put in your shoulder bag and work on at the coffee shop. Small format tapestry can be fun and relatively quick to weave, but small looms do present some unique challenges. Bring any of various small tapestry looms (could include Hokett, Mirrix, Lost Pond, Schacht, copper pipe, or frame looms) and I’ll teach you to warp and weave on them. I have some loaner looms available or you can bring your own. Appropriate for all levels though some experience with weaving is recommended.

Prerequisites/Skills Needed: Appropriate for all levels, though some experience with tapestry weaving is recommended.

Materials you are required to bring: Small tapestry loom and tapestry tools you like (including tapestry fork, tapestry needle, notebook, pencil for notes

Level: All Levels Description of Workshop Levels
Technique: Weaving

Have you ever wanted to try tapestry weaving but weren’t sure you were really going to like it and didn’t want to buy new equipment until you were sure? In this one-day class we will explore all your basic questions about tapestry weaving. The morning presentation and discussion will be about tapestry weaving as a practice, what it entails, what looms work for tapestry, and warp and weft yarns to consider. We will look at examples of tapestries and talk about how to use this medium for creative expression. In the afternoon we will try some beginning tapestry techniques, look at ways to warp various looms, and learn why certain looms are great for this weave structure and others are not so good. This class is intended for people who have no experience with tapestry weaving. Rebecca will bring some small looms to borrow and a Mirrix you can try. If you have a portable loom of some kind, please bring it!

Prerequisites/Skills Needed: None

Materials you are required to bring: All optional: tapestry loom if available, tapestry tools, any yarn to have evaluated/discussed. Rebecca will provide loaner tools to be shared among attendees.

Homework: None
