Saturday 29 - Sunday 30 July / 11.15am–4:15pm
Led by master weaver Caron Penney this vibrant and lively 2-day tapestry weaving workshop will develop an enquiry into colour theory and implement this learning via weaving. Participants will work with primary, secondary and tertiary colours and will be encouraged to use blending to achieve subtle transparent effects, seeing one colour appear through another. The group will work on pre-warped frames provided by the tutor. By the end of the workshop participants will take home a completed tapestry. Aimed at adults, this workshop is suitable for beginners to intermediate levels.
You will learn:
Basic colour theory
How to use the blending technique
How to create overlay effects
How to create shapes and sew slits up
