Class Title Weaving Textured Tapestries for Peace and Self-Expression
Weaver & Yarn Dyer Extraordinaire
In this class makers will weave with different yarns and fibers to create woven pieces that will give them an opportunity for self-expression and joy. We will explore the creation of tapestry weaving from start to finish. In the workshop students will learn: how to warp, how to understand their weaving tools, how to create patterns, how to select materials and colors, and how to take their creations off the loom. Multiple pieces can then be combined to create larger works of art, decor, or garments. Experience Level: Open to all levels Supply List:
a journal to take notes
lots of love, and
the light you carry within you 💜💜💜
Kit Fee: $25 USD -- will include a small tapestry loom and supplies to make individual pieces. Your kit fee will be due to the teacher at the start of class. It is easier if you bring cash in the exact amount of the fee. About Theresa: Theresa Hill has been knitting since childhood and spinning yarn since 2014.
