What's Included

Instructor: Isa Rodrigues In this Tapestry Weaving class, students will learn design and hand weave their own tapestry wall hanging. Students will learn how to use traditional tapestry techniques and apply them to their design. Some basic techniques that will be covered are soumak, warp wrapping, knotting and chaining, twining, overlay and fringing in addition to some very light color theory. All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Students are encouraged to bring in fibers and found objects from home that they would like to use in their tapestries. -- Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. Weekend Intensive students have access to Open Studio time for free for up to a week after the class, to put their new knowledge to practice.

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
