The Wednesday morning group finished 4 weeks (although we had a few snowy days to contend with), and are taking a break until late April, when we’ll do another 4 weeks.
They were my first group, my guinea pigs, and they took off like a shot, jumping right to the advanced techniques. Before I knew it, they were all weaving circles! YIKES!
The Monday class is almost done with their second 4 weeks. Two students are weaving every element on the sampler.
Two students have finished the sampler and are working on tapestries now.
She is weaving it bigger than this, obviously. In this case the cartoon will be a rough guide, as she works with color blending in lovely muted shades of green.
If you’re wondering why you don’t see any pick-and-pick, it’s because I’ve noticed this is one of the hardest techniques to understand. So it gets introduced later, after all the basic shapes have been covered.
Hopefully I’ll get good photos of every student’s work and post them all together sometime soon.
