Workshop: Textile Design: Tapestry Weaving
June 27, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Have you been spying pics of these lovely wool tapestries hanging on the walls of people whose style you adore? Woven tapestries have always been very chic and it seems that they are hard to come by, as they are handmade, unique, and cherished. Three perfect adjectives as to why you should take this workshop! Students will learn how to thread a needle and begin a loom, as well as several braiding methods. All supplies will be covered in the cost of this workshop, including a handmade weaving loom for each student to take home. Participants may bring 4 balls of their own yarn to make something truly unique!
Instructor Savannah Norris is a freelance stylist whom also happens to be one of our assistant managers here at Homespun: Modern Handmade. An Art Institute of Indianapolis alum, she has done styling work for several local and national theatres, shops, restaurants, and magazines. Not to mention she is just an all around crafty lady with seamstress, illustration, design, carpentry, and palm reading skills.
