Are you in the Seattle area? Mirrix CMO Elena Zuyok (that's me!) will be teaching a basic textural class at Weaving Works in Seattle, WA on August 15th, 21015.
The class is will be a very basic beginner class. We will go over warping a Mirrix Loom with a shedding device, the basic concepts of tapestry (sett, shed, line), a few techniques and how to finish a tapestry as a wall-hanging.
We have chosen some beautiful textured neutral yarn and roving and will also have a few colored accent yarns available to choose from.
You will go home with a completed tapestry!
Lately there has been a huge resurgence of interest in tapestry weaving, especially tapestry of a certain aesthetic (a tendency to use neutrals, roving, textured yarns). It is my hope to capture those interested in this type of tapestry and teach them some of the basic building blocks of the art form.
I think this is going to be a really fun class, and it's offered at a great price. Join us!
