You're invited to join Janna Maria online for Tiny Tapestries - an intimate live workshop which introduces new weavers to the fundamentals of small-scale tapestry in a rigorous 2-hour workshop. We cover the elements of design to consider for small-scale tapestry using paper collage and then dive into the basics of tapestry weaving, including 'magic' techniques.
When: Sunday Sept 26th 1pm-3pm pacific.
This workshop takes place via Zoom - you will get your Zoom link and password the day before the workshop. The recorded workshop will be available to watch for six months after the workshop takes place. If you are unable to attend the workshop you will have access to the playback.
Why weave tiny tapestries? Let me tell you!
Tiny tapestries can be made in to magnets, pins, patches, tiny wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can dream up. AND they are a great way to dip your toes into the world of weaving tapestry.
I hope you'll join me!
