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.

Day 3-4. students continue to weave and complete their tapestries, take pictures with a

About Tricia Goldberg:
“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.”
Tricia offers ongoing classes, read more about her on her website & social media accounts.
