Course Overview

Woven tapestries are said to bring the northern landscape alive through geometric, curved, representational, or abstract images. Using the North Shore landscape as inspiration, students will explore this colorful craft and create a landscape tapestry of their own. In this three day class, students will assemble and warp a frame, then weave a small tapestry of their own design. Proper mounting and hanging techniques will also be covered. Each student leaves with their tapestry frame, encouraged to continue the craft of woven tapestries in their own setting. This course is appropriate for beginning weavers as well as those looking to build on their skill set.
