Introduction to Modern Tapestry Weaving

Taught by: Bobbie Tilkens-Fisher

Tapestry weaving is not a new craft form by any means, but the endless variations one can employ while weaving can lead to exciting, modern takes on this traditional craft! In this workshop, students will learn (or review) the basics: fibers, assembling a loom, warping, stitches and knots, shapes, space and finishing techniques. We will create woven wall hangings. As we weave, we will explore ways to combine, deconstruct and distill those traditional basics down to the ones that bring you the most joy; resulting in your own unique and modern style. We will learn about the concept of flow and reject the notion of mistakes – all while exploring playfulness and the possibilities different fibers present. Everyone will leave with at least one finished woven wall hanging. Students of all levels are welcome
