Beth Scarth became interested in tapestry when Damascus Fiber Arts School had a show of tapestries at the Sandy Library, where she worked. In 2014, after retirement, she began studying tapestry at the school. In the years that followed, she took workshops in Navajo-style weaving, Soumak, Zilli, Raised Outline Pick and Pick, and Wedge Weave. She enjoys experimenting with different techniques, using Procreate in her design process, and teaching others how to use it.
Beth has served as Secretary to the DFAS Board since its inception in 2020. Additionally, she reorganized the school’s library of about 500 books, cataloging them into an online database.
