Weaving Words in Tapestry

12 excited students came prepared with looms warped and a word cartoon in hand to Phoebe McAffee’s July 3-day workshop Weaving Words in Tapestry.

Phoebe brought with her a plethora of examples and stories of how each of the cartoons and tapestries were created.

Students got right to work weaving their word with expectations to have their word completed by the end of the three-day workshop. Once in a while, a student would shout out “I have my ‘e’ done” and everyone would cheer.

At the end of the third day, all the students had made a great deal of progress on their word, with some able to finish.
