***** PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A TWO DAY EVENT *******

TAPESTRY WORKSHOP – WEAVING GREEN with Joan Baxter and John Brennan

Dates and Venues:

Saturday 5th May 2 – 5 pm at Roscommon County Council, Aras on Chontae, Ardnanagh, Roscommon.

Sunday 6th May 1 – 5 pm upstairs room at King House, Boyle, Co Roscommon. Bus to location inlcuded in cost.

This 7 hour practical workshop, over two afternoons, is aimed at those with some experience of tapestry. In it we intend to explore the colour green first of all through approaches to mixing colour and then looking at ways we can apply these colours to interpreting foliage forms into tapestry. We will draw our inspiration from nature and historic tapestries. Every plant has a pattern…..how its branches break from the stem, the shapes of leaves and patterns of bark. Understanding the pattern is a good way to simplify the form for tapestry. We will look at the sometimes quite abstract solutions used to interpret foliage by the weavers of historic tapestries.

Maximum number of participants: 20

What to bring:

If possible students should bring their own frames, ready warped at 3, 3.5 or 4 warps to the cm. (Nos.12/12 or 12/9 warp) and 14 – 20 cms wide. We can lend frames and provide warp if required.

We will be providing some weft yarns for use in the workshop, but please bring a green stash of your own too.

Cost: €120.00 Covers both days. Materials and equipment provided on loan, to purchase or please bring your own.

This project is funded and supported by Roscommon County Council.
