This class is designed for students who know how to warp a loom and understand some basic techniques of weaving tapestry: meet and separate, hatching, as well as weaving geometric and curved shapes. If you have taken Betty’s Beginning tapestry weaving you should have these skills. In this 3 day class we will review the above techniques as well as adding some new ones as you weave a small cartoon of your own design. Day 1 will be spent refining your image into a weaveable cartoon. Please bring any photos, sketches, or paintings you have and want to weave. This is not a design class, please have your design ideas worked out prior to class. You will warp your loom and start weaving once the cartoon is finalized. Day 2 & 3 you will weave your image. We will discuss finishing and ways to present your piece after cutting your piece off the loom on Day 3.
