SHADING TECHNIQUES IN TAPESTRY




Friday, October 31 - Monday, November 3, 2014
At Elizabeth Buckley's studio in Albuquerque, NM
9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Use of shading techniques can expand the yarn palette without having to dye so many colors. In this workshop, we will work with how to create value changes using woven techniques based on gradations of dots and lines.  We will engage in a deeper exploration of how to create areas of transition in value, color, and shape.  Whether weaving from the front or the back of the tapestry, the possibilities are endless for creating depth in space, three-dimensionality, and shapes merging into other forms.   Intermediate level.  Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques.
