Tapestry Weaving with David Johnson VIA ZOOM

In this class students will weave tapestries using plain and soumak techniques.

Session one will include a discussion on the historical and cultural traditions in tapestry weaving and the methods used to produce imagery and pattern. Class two starts with a review of the sample weavings and a conversation on designing and using a “cartoon” to control imagery and pattern allowing participants to come up with their own unique designs. Finally in class three we will continue to weave as well as cover finishing techniques and warping.

Included in the tuition for the class is a warped loom made by the instructor that students get to keep as well as wool weft yarn (Brown Sheep Lanaloft Worsted) in 0.5 oz balls of primary, secondary, black/grey/white, and three browns of different values to equal 12 colors.  Loom/yarn kit will be available for pick up after September 1st.  If we are shipping your loom please allow 1 week for shipping.  Shipping is an additional fee of 15.00- 25.00 depending on location in the continental US.  

Student provides:  Scissors and a I-Pad or computer for logging in to zoom for the class.  We have learned that using a phone is too small of a screen for effective learning.  A phone to allow for a 2nd log in with zoom to share progress with the teacher is helpful!
