My online tapestry workshop with the School of SweetGeorgia

~ above is the School of SweetGeorgia’s instagram post announcing our collaboration ~

Last week I tidied my studio and mounted some tapestries for a visit from Felicia Lo and Leah (@thecraftycolon) of the School of SweetGeorgia (SOS). My friend Sheleigh assisted us all day and got us black tea when we were parched and tired. We spent a whole day filming an introductory tapestry weaving workshop that SOS will be releasing in the fall. To say I'm excited is an understatement, and honoured would be a more accurate word to describe how I feel about being included in the SOS family.

Between now and then I'm going to be doing my best to help prepare any of you out there who want to learn the art of tapestry weaving online with me with options for looms, yarn and tools at a variety of price points that you can begin to collect between now and then. Join our mailing list for monthly updates so you don't miss anything.

In the meantime check out this 2015 video of me showing you how to make a PVC loom and this Vancouver Yarn blog post from American Tapestry Alliances first blog tour, where I illustrate how to warp up and manage the warps as you weave.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions leading up to the launch of the online class in the fall.
