Landscape in Tapestry Workshop by Elizabeth Buckley
Thur-Sun, August 24-27
The landscape is about one’s relationship with the earth. The response in tapestry can be small and intimate, or large scale; abstract, representational, or somewhere in between. In this workshop, we will explore the varied aspects of the landscape, how to distill and simplify into the language of tapestry. We will make several field trips to the Open Space Visitor’s Center, not only to see The Textures of Earth Memory show, but also to view, draw, and photograph inspiration from the vistas of the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande Bosque.

Versatility of Hachures Workshop by Elizabeth Buckley
Thur-Sun, October 19-22
Hachures can be simple or complex. Many medieval and gothic tapestries exemplify their use in the drape and folds of fabric, depictions of animals, and botanical details. Contemporary tapestry applications of hachures can range from creating transparency or the feel of ripples on water to gradating color blends, or shaping and shading forms for a sense of volume and threedimensionality. In this workshop, we will explore different types of hachures and their applications, and visit The Textures of Earth Memory exhibit. Contact Elizabeth at
