Join Tapestry artist Dianne Kennedy Cruttenden and broaden your weaving techniques in this playful full-day workshop of tapestry explorations!  Designing for Tapestry is for those with some experience with  weaving. Dianne will encourage you to think like a weaver through the exploration of the elements of design in tapestry and will guide you through the intricacies of translating a design to weave. Bring your sense of adventure and meet some new fibre loving friends!

Dianne likes to say” I am a ‘practicing’ tapestry artist.” There is always so much to learn and share on a lifelong weaving journey. Bring your questions and ideas, and we will share some weaving techniques and designs to bring our tapestry visions to life!

$40 kit fee payable in cash to the instructor at the start of class.

All materials provided. Your kit will include a colourful variety of yarn, including Dianne’s own hand spun and hand dyed yarn, and a simple loom  to get you started.
