Workshop: Weave a Wired Tapestry with Rebecca Smith
Saturday, October 9, 2021, 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM
Registration is required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
Rebecca Smith's style of tapestry weaving incorporates seed beads and wire to make freestanding tapestries that undulate and capture light in unique ways. In this workshop you will learn her techniques and be able to create your own small tapestry.
Participants do not need to have tapestry weaving experience. Participants should arrive with a pre-warped loom sett at 8 epi using 10/2 perle cotton in a dark color (equivalent sized yarns will also work) and 5” wide. Most types of loom are acceptable, but not a Hokett-style loom. You must be able to get your hands behind the warp.
Materials fee (payable to the teacher): $20 includes beads, wire, yarn, beading needle and thread, and handouts
