Tapestry weaving is a visual art form that requires only a simple frame loom, a palette of yarn, and your imagination. In this class, you will learn how to weave images using the basic design elements of line, shape, color, and shading. We will consider the place of tapestry as a fine art with a long tradition as well as a vibrant contemporary medium. The materials fee includes the purchase of a frame loom and weaving tools (yours to keep) and yarn for the sampler you will weave. Please bring your own scissors.
Katie Hickey is a tapestry weaver and teacher who lives in Wellfleet, which inspires many of her woven images. Her work has been shown at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Cahoon Museum of American Art, the Massachusetts State Capitol Building, and various galleries and libraries on Cape Cod. She is a member of the American Tapestry Alliance and Tapestry Weavers in New England.
