Intro to Tapestry Weaving

with Nancy Dugger

Left to Right: Stopping by Woods by Nancy Dugger; Bohemian-inspired wall hanging by Anna Swiderek; The Spirit in Georgia's Black Place by Nancy Dugger

Description: Whether you want to "paint" with fiber or create your own free-form woven wall hangings, this is the place to start! You'll learn how to create diagonal and curved shapes and to place them where you want them using meet and separate to dovetail two colors together and vertical slits to create adjacent blocks of color. With these tapestry basics under your belt, you'll be well on your way to weaving anything you can imagine.

Nancy Dugger has been a weaver for over fifty years, concentrating on tapestry for the last ten years. She exhibits her work in Tapestry Weavers South shows and has also been juried into exhibitions sponsored by the American Tapestry Alliance and the Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild. Nancy weaves primarily for her own enjoyment, and she loves teaching others the art of weaving tapestry.
