Our tapestry course at Craftsy was a huge success (and if you haven’t seen it yet, now is the time to since it’s selling from $14.95. Six hours of instruction for $14.95 is really inexpensive. Check it out here: http://www.craftsy.com/class/Bead-and-Tapestry-Cuffs/78.

But right now we are working on another online class, this one for craftartedu.org. This one is straight tapestry. It’s done in a different format. Lots of photos and voice overs and possible some videos thrown in here and there. It’s designed such that it can be endless updated and changed, which I love. But right now I have to survive the voice overs, which are taken a huge amount of time. We plan on having this launched on Nov. 15th. The kits that go with the class are available now on our website: ooms.com/store/craftartedutapestrykit.html. Here is a picture of the kit wool/mohair yarn, a 100 gram tube of Navajo wool warp, twill binding tape and velcro for finishing.
You will learn a bunch of techniques in this class including: slit tapestry; weft interlock; warp interlock; weaving in opposite directions; geometrical shapes; hatching; shading; making organic shapes; dotting. You will be armed with all the techniques you need to go on to the next stage: designing and creating a tapestry.
