Foundations of Tapestry Weaving with Nancy McRay 

Explore different ways to create shapes though the practice of slits, interlocks and other types of joins, and more!

Tapestry is among the oldest forms of fine arts. Originally created for cathedrals and castles, they were used to insulate big stone halls, illustrating battles, parables and metaphors. While the techniques employed have not changed for centuries, the imagery has. Smaller, portable personal sized looms are now available, making it easier to more people to enjoy this art form. In this introductory class, weaving instructor Nancy McRay will show you how to warp a tapestry loom correctly. From there, students will explore different ways to create shapes though the practice of slits, interlocks and other types of joins. Finishing and mounting techniques will also be covered. Students will leave the workshop with an understanding of the tapestry making process, some foundational skills, and a small, completed (or nearly completed) tapestry. Students must bring their own 10″ wide tapestry loom, preferably one with a shedding device and a way to control tension, along with a tapestry folk. If new to weaving, participants may [email protected] regarding tapestry loom sources. The supply fee will cover the cost of the warp and weft yarns that the instructor will provide for each student. All skill levels welcome.
