Thursdays—Jan 26, Feb 23, Mar 23, Apr 27
These Master Classes focus on a range of technical challenges in tapestry; be it weaving smoother curves, better understanding hachures or color blending to achieve the effects of transparency, gradations or 3dimensional form. Strong emphasis will continue to be on design, exploring different ways to translate concepts and ideas into tapestry, addressing how to synchronize technique and design. Classes are from 10-3:30.
