Winter/Spring Studio Workshops
by Elizabeth Buckley
Hachures in Contemporary Tapestry
March 5-8, 2020, 9:30-3:30
In this workshop, we will demystify design theory around why hachures work and logic behind how to create multiple effects through their use. From seamless blending, or the feel of ripples and reflections in water, to shaping and shading three-dimensional forms, and creating illusory space, hachures have many applications in contemporary tapestry. We will explore different types of hachures and how to incorporate them in tapestry design, be it representational, abstract, or somewhere in between. Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques and know how to warp their loom.
Weaving Water in Tapestry
April 30-May 3, 2020, 9:30-3:30
Weaving water in tapestry presents design and technical challenges in depicting the surface of water, the reflection, movement of ripples or waves, and what lies beneath the surface. In this workshop we will explore each of these components, and different ways to utilize tapestry techniques to create the feel of water, whether it be representational, abstract, or somewhere in between. Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques and know how to warp their loom. Questions or to register, contact Elizabeth at 243-3153 or Elizabeth@elizabethbuckelytapestryartist.com

When your number comes up, you can steal an earlier person's gift (that is still available to steal) or chose a new gift. If a person has their gift stolen, they can steal another gift or pick a new gift. A gift can only be stolen 2 times.
