Workshop Description: Tapestry Color Blending
It’s all about color! Values do all the work - color gets all the credit. Join Louise for a discussion on ways to approach color in your tapestries. Learn how to wind a tapestry bobbin and its value in weaving. Learn color blending through yarn windings using mixtures of Melange and Chine colored yarns. Louise will also discuss color integration through the use of hachure and hatching and the differences in their structure, the all important relationship of the warp sett, and the number and size of yarn ends in the weft bundle.
Basic tapestry weaving knowledge required.
Supplies: Notebook for taking notes. Provided will be a tapestry bobbin, yarn, Bibliography, and notes.
Materials/Handouts Fee: $10. Due at class
Attendee Limit: 12
Instructor Bio: “Five Minutes a day” was the sage advice a fellow tapestry weaver gave for finding time to weave. How could that possibly make a difference to someone with a passion for weaving textiles and little available time? It did! Louise has been a hand weaver for over 40 years. She loves the problem solving challenges that weaving offers, the tactile feeling of yarn, and the technical relationship between the weaver, loom, and the fiber.
Working with natural materials such as wool, silk, cotton, linen and other unique fibers inspires Louise. She has used many different weave structures, but currently weaves tapestry. Part of the joy of tapestry is interpreting the image to communicate a particular feeling or philosophy. The end results don’t always reflect the beginning as she is constantly injecting her “voice” into the piece. Louise weaves themes which move her and invite the viewer to contemplate how the piece relates to the title.
Louise is self taught, but has attended many workshops and classes. Her weaving has given her the opportunity to travel and make new friends in the textile community. Louise currently belongs to an Art Gallery where she displays her work, and exhibits her tapestries at other outside venues.
