Hill Country Weavers
Instructor: Drea Peters
In this specialty workshop, we will cover a bunch of different shapes like the elusive circle! We will try our hand at creating elegant curves and puffy pom-poms. Making smooth, flowing curves (instead of boxy edges) is what we will focus on. Being able to implement these techniques really allows you to add much more interest into your woven wall hangings.
Last but not least…. negative spaces!!!!! These add a totally new dimension using the absence of yarn and leaving exposed warp. The tricky part is getting these open spaces to hold shape and work for your design. We will also cover important outlining / shape holding techniques that make this possible.
- level 1 workshop (Bohemian Tapestry Weaving) or comparable beginners class
