Warping Review Workshop
by Cathlena Burr
Thurs &Fri, June 13-14; 9:30-4
Are you not weaving because you're feeling shaky about dressing the loom, or wish you were more efficient in the process, or maybe its just been a while since you last warped a loom? In this class I will work with you and your chosen project to get that loom warped. This class will review front to back or back to front; whichever you prefer. You will need a portable loom to bring to class. This is for people who have warped a loom at least once before. $129.45 (includes tax) Classes are at Southwest Decoratives, 5711 Carmel Ave. NE. Contact Cathlena at 264-7969 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Versatility of Hachures in Tapestry Workshop
by Elizabeth Buckley
Thur-Sun, Sept 26-29; 9:30-3:30
Hachures, as a technical category of repeated marks or patterns, 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 graduating color blends, or shaping and shading forms for a sense of volume and 3- dimensions. In this workshop we will explore different types of hachures, their applications, and how to incorporate these 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. Questions or to register, contact Elizabeth at Elizabeth@elizabethbuckelytapestryartist.com or 243-3153
