Intermediate Weaving on a Simple Frame Loom

Instructor: Joh Ricci
Description: This workshop meets Saturday, July 21; Sunday, July 22; & Saturday July 28, from 11:30am-4pm each day. Build upon your skills from Weaving on a Simple Frame Loom! Students will gain further knowledge of tapestry weaving techniques and have the opportunity to improve their skills as weavers. Focus will be on inspiration as well as the materials that reflect your personal vocabulary of imagery and shapes. Learn skills to draw from your own experience to create a new piece using colored pencils, designs, colors, and textures. Students will also create 'cartoon' drawings that will be used as a guide for weaving projects. The workshop will include a review of the basics, introduction of new techniques, and one-on-one dialogue about ideas and ways to achieve your weaving goals. Demos, woven work samples, and finishing techniques will also be covered. Prerequisite: Weaving on a Simple Frame Loom. Students should have knowledge of basic tapestry weaving techniques and vocabulary.
