In this ALL LEVELS 3-day workshop, students will learn/review the basics of tapestry weaving and special techniques for creating a really BIG woven wall hanging. We will also explore experimental techniques and explore ways to find your unique voice as a weaver! Instruction runs each day from 9:30 to 1:30 minimum. Students are welcome to stay in the studio as long as they wish for the duration of the three days. I am happy to help arrange afternoon outings, dinners at local establishments, etc. for those who desire them. Soft drinks and snacks will be provided. This workshop includes a 36-inch tapestry loom, tools, warp string and up to 5lbs of fiber. Feel free to bring some of your own favorite yarns if you wish.
