Curves in Tapestry Workshop
by Elizabeth Buckley
Thur-Sun, Oct. 25-28, 9:30-3:30
Curves present unique technical challenges in tapestry. In this workshop we will explore several approaches to weaving curves as shapes, as well as lines. Participants can expect to become more familiar with empty and full warps, eccentric wefts and shading techniques to depict shallow or steep curves, organic shapes, and meandering lines. This workshop will incorporate the use of shapebuilding and how to design weavable curves in tapestry, working from either the front or the back. Beginning/Intermediate level. Need to know who to warp your loom and basic tapestry techniques. The workshop is at Elizabeth Buckley’s studio in the South Valley.
