Curves In Tapestry Workshop

Saturday, December 1 - Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Curves present unique technical challenges in tapestry.  In this intermediate-level workshop we will explore several approaches to weaving curves as shapes, as well as lines.  Participants can expect to become more familiar with empty and full warps, eccentric wefts, and shading techniques to depict shallow or steep curves, organic shapes, and meandering lines.  This workshop will incorporate the use of shape-building and how to design weavable curves in tapestry, working either from the front or the back.
