This class is designed for beginners, but anyone is welcome to participate. Class will cover warping a tapestry loom, beginning and ending a tapestry, and techniques to start and begin yarns. The main concept will be on creating angles within tapestry, including chevrons.
Students will have homework so that we can complete the tapestry by the last class.
This class consists of three 2-hour sessions on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. on January 14, 21 and 28, 2020. Classes will be rescheduled if needed due to snow or ice.
Other Tiny Tapestry Techniques topics (dates to be announced) will cover ‘moving color’ and curves. Participants who take all classes will produce a complete set of unique and useful mug rugs!
