Fiber & Bead Combination Class taught by Claudia Chase and Joni Parker-Roach
March 14th and 15th, 2014
Creating Illusory Space in Tapestry taught by Elizabeth Buckley
Friday, May 1 – Monday, May 4, 2015 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
At Elizabeth Buckley’s studio in Albuquerque, NM
Backgrounds can become more three-dimensional though the use of illusory space, transparency, or layers. In this workshop we will explore the design principles behind creating depth in space, and how to incorporate these in tapestry design, be it representational, abstract or somewhere in between. We will examine images of numerous tapestries, including those in the Contemporary International Tapestry exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ. (hunterdonartmuseum.org until May 10, 2015 if you are in the area). Students can expect to generate several designs, fine-tune one, make a cartoon and begin weaving. Intermediate level. Students need to be familiar with basic tapestry techniques.
