Tapestry Weaving at the School of SweetGeorgia
Who are the courses for?
My tapestry courses are for beginner to beyond beginner tapestry weavers who are 15 years old or older.
My tapestry workshop suite at SOS is only $19USD/month (or less if you sign up for multiple months at a time). This fee constitutes a School of SweetGeorgia membership and includes all of my tapestry workshops as well as the entire growing library of SOS weaving, dyeing, spinning, and knitting lessons.
Where do I start?
Regardless of what stage you are at as a weaver, from beginner to experienced, I recommend starting with my Fundamentals of Tapestry course and then moving on to Techniques in Tapestry.
Janna Maria is a 2013 Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program (Montreal). She first learned how to weave tapestry in 2008 under the instruction West Dean trained weaver Anthea Mallinson at Capilano University's Textile Art diploma program. In 2014 she began weaving tapestry as her primary artistic medium when she participated in Mirrix Loom's Social Market for a Mirrix program where she received her first Mirrix Loom, the 16" Big Sister, and hasn't looked back. Janna has been teaching introductory tapestry weaving in person for several years around North America and launched an online workshop with the School of SweetGeorgia in October 2019.
Here are some of Janna's tapestries handwoven in Everlea Yarn.
