Getting Schooled!

Tomorrow is my last day of a three day tapestry class with Tommye Scanlon.  It has been a delight, such a wonderful opportunity to focus on something I love.  The class is being held at Artspace.  It is such an inspiring place, being surrounded by artists studios makes me believe even more in the value of "making things".

The class is intended for beginners, which definitely is appropriate for me.  Tommye brought beautiful samples of her work.

The class is a great combination of Tommye demonstrating techniques and hands on weaving.

As you can see we are working hard and trying to absorb as much as possible.  You would think three days would be a gracious plenty but it is not. The workshop has been extremely well organized.  Tommye brought looms, yarns and booklets for each of us.   Artspace is an excellent venue.
Tomorrow a post on an inspiring tapestry artist and her studio and the ATA juried small format show.
