Susan Iverson teaches this 4-day workshop. Participants will learn how to use a technique that can create bends, curves, and 3-D forms in tapestries. Weaving will be done on frame looms or tapestry looms. Personal aesthetic growth will be our goal as this technique can be a catalyst for idea formation and development. Four days with powerpoint lectures, demonstrations, maquette making, and time for weaving samples. All skill levels welcome. A materials fee of $7 is paid directly to instructor. Maximum class size is 12.
