Tapestry: Is It Supposed to be Hard?
Thursday All Day
Basic Tapestry techniques have remained the same for centuries. Various cultures may have nuanced certain methods, but on the whole, these tried-and-true techniques have not changed. Tapestry weaving is not difficult, but because it is considered "slow cloth," it requires a great deal of patience. This class will present the foundational principles of Tapestry, focusing on warping skills, Lines, Joins, Angles and finishing techniques.
