The elemental construction of a weaving can be broken down into the character of the fibers of the weft and the composition of the weave itself.
In this workshop, Rolf will take you through the process of building a pulledwarp tapestry weaving. This will include deconstructing the plane of the weave by arranging cut paper maquettes, while applying the principles of form and space to make a three-dimensional composition. You will learn how to assemble your weaving with warping your own loom, and will end with a finished sample weaving.
