Foundations in Tapestry Design
A Four-day workshop at Elizabeth Buckley’s studio in Albuquerque, NM
Friday, Nov. 6 – Monday, Nov. 9 , 2015 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm.
An intimate class: limited to 7 students
This intermediate level workshop is an overview of fundamental design principles that apply to effective tapestry design.
We will examine how to coordinate technique with design, rather than copy a photograph or a painting.
Create several designs, fine-tune one, make a cartoon, and begin weaving a study.
Students from all tapestry traditions are welcome!
