Our October Interweave, A Study in Angles class was wonderfully challenging and exciting! Our students, Susan and Anne, were both enthusiastic and ready to try new things.

This was Anne’s first time at a loom. The first couple days were a little tricky, though you wouldn’t be able to tell by the beauty of her piece or the progress she was making! The final day, Anne dove into some building techniques to approach the angles and had no troubles at all. By the end of class she had finished a beautiful ocean-inspired piece.

Susan has been weaving for some time now, but had not had much time to explore tapestry techniques. She decided on a very complex design, using multiple angle techniques at the same time. The third day, she decided to play around with some other techniques, including ojos and wavy lines. We finished class with a quick intro into vertical joints, leaving Susan with a beautiful sampler and a great knowledge base for her exploration of tapestry weaving!

    • Love the subtle interplay of colors at the beginning of Susan’s piece and the vibrant contrasts in Anne’s. Endless possibilities in tapestry and it is so satisfying.

  • I only got to meet your grandmother two times, and I was awe struck. I have been friends with Cecelia Jaffe for 30+ years, and we have often talked about your grandmother and others that Cecelia knew when she lived there. At the last spinning meeting, she told me you had moved. I am very excited for you and I really am appreciating your sharing the tapestries and the stories. I signed up for the newsletter today.
