Painting with Yarn: Soumak Tapestry
In this workshop students will learn to weave with soumak knots to create a tapestry that has painterly qualities. Inherent in soumak is the ability to weave in an eccentric way allowing one to break away from the ridged 90 degree orientation of warp to weft. By weaving eccentrically we create hills and valleys as we weave down the length of the warp. Tapestry woven in this way has a free flowing and spontaneous quality which gives the finished work a fresh and gestural look. Variations in the technique will be explored as the weaving progresses.
Materials Fee: $40.00 per student, payable directly to instructor includes pre-warped loom which is yours to keep. Some yarns are also included.
