INTRODUCTION TO TAPESTRY WEAVING
Tapestry weaving can be done on a frame, rigid heddle, or harness loom. We will be working on rigid heddle looms and floor looms to create a small tapestry. Using slit and diagonal techniques, we will weave a design based on a simple illustration. If you plan to use one of our looms, be sure to sign up for the loom rental listed below. You will need to buy 2 colors of Lambs Pride Worsted for your weft. By Bea Bonanno.

SUPPLEMENTAL WEFT TAPESTRY
In this class, we will be creating designs on plain weave fabric using inlaid supplemental wefts. This technique is a bit faster than traditional tapestry and creates a lightweight ground cloth with individual forms woven within. Use up your oddments and have fun with color! By Bea Bonanno.
