Depth of Space in Tapestry Workshop Thur-Sun, Feb. 28-Mar. 3; 9:30-3:30
Backgrounds can become more threedimensional through the use of depth in space, whether it be in a landscape or in creating illusory space. In this workshop we will explore the design principles behind the use of planes and layers, and how to incorporate these in tapestry design, be it representational, abstract or somewhere in between.
Values & Shading Techniques in Tapestry Workshop Thur-Sun, May 2-5; 9:30-3:30
An in-depth look at the correlation between values and shading techniques, this workshop will explore how to create gradations using demi-duites (dots), weft-bundle blending, alternate line gradations, hatching & hachures.
In both workshops, students can expect to generate several designs, fine-tune one, make a cartoon and begin weaving a small study. Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques and know how to warp their loom. Questions or to register, contact Elizabeth to sign up at:
