Tapestry Weaving 101 with Janna
Just popping in to let you know that in the coming weeks I’m teaching two introductory tapestry weaving workshops British Columbia Canada. One is coming up on Saturday Feb 11th in Gibsons Landing on the Sunshine Coast and the other is at Fibres West an annual textile marketplace in Surrey BC. I’m teaching a full-day workshop there on Friday March 17th.
In both workshops students will leave the workshop with a solid understanding of the process of warping up and weaving with multiple techniques like shape building, colour blending and textural techniques. We will talk about how to choose yarn for your projects, as well as finishing techniques and how to troubleshoot tapestry-specific issues. Students will leave with a good start on a sampler wall-hanging in colours of their choosing from a range of naturally dyed yarns made by me.
For both classes participants have the option of buying a Mirrix Loom from me before or after the class at a $20 discount.
