Upcoming Classes:

Tapestry Weaving 101 with Janna Maria Vallee
In this workshop students learn the fundamentals of the art tapestry weaving and gain a solid understanding of the process of warping up and weaving with tapestry techniques like shape building and colour blending. We also talk about how to choose yarn for your projects, how to finish your tapestry as well as how to troubleshoot tapestry-specific issues. Students will leave with a good start on a project in colours of their choosing from a range of naturally dyed yarns made by Janna.
