The Nature Of Things: Looking At The World With An Eye For Tapestry Making
July 29, 2018 – August 4, 2018
In this workshop students seek inspiration for tapestry design by exploring the surroundings of Arrowmont. You will collect visual information and translate it into designs from which tapestry cartoons can be developed. Participants may bring photos, sketches, or paintings from their home environment to discuss and plan for future tapestries based upon your own “nature of things.” Students should be at intermediate level in tapestry skills, able to warp a tapestry loom and weave basic tapestry methods.
COURSE FEE: $525
