Tapestry: Begin with the Basics and Move Beyond
August 9-15, 2009
Instructor: Tommye McClure Scanlin
Tuition: $512.00
Tapestry weaving is a unique means of creating images with yarn. The simple process of weaving over and under lends itself to a multitude of approaches with imagery. Basic tapestry technique and design will be introduced and reinforced by weaving a sampler on a simple frame loom. Finishing and mounting suggestions will be given so the sampler can become a small wall hanging. No prior weaving experience is necessary.
