Techniques in Tapestry at the School of SweetGeorgia

Janna Vallee learn tapestry

Today the final two lessons in my new School of SweetGeorgia series, Techniques in Tapestry, has launched! They include:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Double Weft Interlock: Learn how to avoid slits by clasping your wefts between two warps in a double-weft-interlock.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Blocking Your Tapestry: When your tapestry has come off your loom and you realize it is not perfectly square or rectangular you might be able to correct it by blocking your tapestry. Let me show you how!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other four lessons previously released in this series include: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Tips on making crisp horizontal lines⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-How to weave 5 different coloured vertical pillars of any width using only three bundles of colours (we are blending colours on the loom!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-How to weave vertical pillars which are one warp wide using pick and pick.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-How to blend colours between shapes to create shading and transparency.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you thinking about venturing into tapestry weaving? Previous to these new lessons I've released a three-hour comprehensive introduction to tapestry weaving. So, if you're new to tapestry start there. All my lessons as well as the whole School of SweetGeorgia library of fibre art lessons come with an SOS membership which start at 19USD monthly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
