Our Summer Classes have been exactly what we had hoped for! We have had a variety of students, ranging from complete beginners to accomplished weavers. We are so excited to share our students work!
We started out the class by tying up the looms and talking about color and design. They then chose a selection of our hand-dyed 2-Ply Tapestry Yarn to work with.
Once the yarn was prepared and the warp was tight we began to weave! Using the Building Techniques taught in this class, Mindy and Kathie started to create various hill-like shapes… and then filled in the valleys. We explored various techniques, including Pick n’ Pick, Wavy Line and Ojos.
Once the pieces were complete, we cut them off the loom and discussed the many ways a tapestry could be finished.
Their tapestries turned out beautiful! And I believe both Kathie and Mindy have great potential to be wonderful tapestry weavers!
