Class Description: Students will weave with sumptuous fine wool yarns and learn tapestry techniques including hatchings, hachures, slits, and patterns for combining colors, and experiment with eccentric or non-horizontal weaving. They will begin with warping a small loom and choose or create a design to be a paper cartoon to use as a guide during weaving. Beginners will start with basic techniques. Intermediate and advanced students may choose to have a specific focus, or problem solve in a difficult area.  All levels are welcome. Small looms and all the equipment, materials, and yarns are available to use in class. Continuing students, Tricia looks forward to working with you again!

BIO: “I have been designing, weaving, and exhibiting tapestries for over thirty-five years. My tapestries are in numerous collections and have been featured in various publications. One of my goals is to maintain a freshness and liveliness in my weavings. I work in color before finalizing a design, but I weave from a black and white “cartoon” behind the loom. This allows room for play and experimentation.”
