Designing for Tapestry with Tommye Scanlin

In the class, participants will explore many approaches to designing for tapestry weaving, including photography, drawing, painting, and collage. Exercises to encourage creative process will be presented and through those each person will begin to develop strategies for creating one’s own imagery. Before making the cartoon for a tapestry, we will discuss the images created to determine how they may be adapted to the constraints of the tapestry weaving techniques. During the final part of the workshop, the participants will have the option of beginning a weaving based upon a cartoon that has been developed or continuing to work on cartoons for future tapestries.
