New Faces in Tapestry

The Birthday Bash continues.

Seven eager weavers meet in Minneapolis, ready for a 2 1/2 day workshop with the daunting task of creating new faces. What sort of character will they create?

This group was the most skilled class I've taught so far. I enjoy teaching beginners, explaining the bones of tapestry and watching their understanding emerge. This group already had the basics and there were no fires to put out. Let the personalities emerge.

When I teach a class about weaving new personalities I focus on surface texture and face expression. Ok, we are always thinking about value. And the farther we get to the finish line, the more difficult the use of value becomes.

Meet the new ladies ( why are there rarely any men?) I bet you might even know some of these folks.

Happy Graduation All!
