We did it in Minneapolis last week where I spent my birthday weekend at the welcoming Textile Center in Minneapolis. Thirteen enthusiastic weavers came for a one day workshop to weave a landscape.
It was intensive and non stop, but Traudi still found time for coffee.
I stress values and surface textures when I do this workshop so hand spinners have the advantage. Not interested in spinning? Look at some of the hand painted roving available on the market.
Discoveries were made and as always I made some along with my students. I only hope this taste of tapestry leads some to explore further.
Stay tuned for part 2 , Face Expressions, a 2 1/2 day workshop there.....it was a big birthday bash!
