Modern Tapestry Weaving – Digital Class • December 7 and 14

, , ,

Tuesdays, December 7 and 14, 1 – 3 pm CDT

Ashley Kreisman

Weave a wall hanging from start to finish! Learn how to set up, warp, and weave on your own frame loom. Explore how material choices impact texture and structure, learn about different fibers and tools used in tapestry weaving, and try your hand at 5 different weaving techniques: plain weave, soumak, pile weave or loops, shapes, and rya. By the end of class, you will learn how to finish your project and remove it from the loom. Great for beginners!

You can source your own materials, or choose the optional supply kit for $15 plus shipping (order by November 23). All details are on the supply list. If you do not have a 14″ or larger tapestry loom, you will need to purchase a 14” Beka frame loom before class starts – available in Textile Center’s shop for $37.80 plus tax. (Shipping is extra. Members save 10% on both the loom and the class!)

Instructor Bio:

Ashley Kreisman, an ultimate DIY kind of gal, loves using her hands to create and immediately knew weaving was a craft she needed to learn. Ironically enough, her husband’s family has been making weaving looms since 1973. Their company, called Beka Inc, was born out of a set of brothers and their wives who had a passion for weaving. They were the ultimate hippies, traveling across the country, teaching weaving classes in the seventies. Now that the business has entered into the second generation, Kreisman is helping keep one of their core values alive by continuing to teach the art and craft of weaving.

NOTE: Under SHIPPING in your shopping cart, PLEASE CHECK “Class Registration: NO SHIPPING REQUIRED” or you will be charged an additional fee for shipping–UNLESS YOU ARE ORDERING THE 14″ BEKA LOOM AT THE SAME TIME AND WANT IT SHIPPED!
