Introduction to Tapestry Weaving with Amy Belgan
Time: Friday 6:30-9:30pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Amy Belgan
Availability: SOLD OUT
Tapestry weaving is a hand-manipulated technique used by weavers as a way to “draw with yarn”. Unlike the types of weaving made on floor or table-top looms, tapestry weaving doesn’t confine the weaver to repeating patterns, but rather offers the opportunity to create pictorial imagery and geometric motifs in woven-form.
WildCraft instructor, Amy Belgan brings a painterly approach to weaving, and in this 2.5 day intro course will instruct beginning students in the basic techniques of tapestry weaving focusing on stripes and geometric shapes. Amy will provide copper looms for students to create a sampler of techniques. She will instruct on the essentials of warping, weave techniques, methods for shape-making, how to fix common mistakes and how to finish a weaving. In addition to a Tapestry Weaving Craft Book, complete with terminology, weaving guide and techniques, the copper tapestry loom is included in the materials fee and will be yours to take home.
Looms and all materials are provided by WildCraft.
