The Perfect Weaving Class for CreativeBug: Tiny Tapestry Pillows
Elena Zuyok, CMO of Mirrix Tapestry & Bead Looms, has been weaving her whole life and teaching since 2009. While introduced to tapestry in a traditional sense, recently she has been experimenting with the free-form, textural weft-faced weaving that has become so popular in recent years.
These pillows are simple to make and teach some of the fundamentals of tapestry weaving as well as how to finish a weaving in a unique way.
The proposed class would go over:
-How to make a simple frame loom (Although the class would be shown on a Mirrix. With Mirrix’s Craftsy class, we give Craftsy a percent of profits from all looms and kits sold through Craftsy. That might work with Creativebug, too!)
-The basics of weaving including weaving in opposite directions, hatching and pick and pick.
-How to finish a tapestry pillow.
