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
