Take a walk along Schoolhouse Beach and be inspired by the water that surrounds Washington Island. Using traditional tapestry techniques, you will design and weave a small landscape with hand-dyed yarns on a simple provided frame loom. Our focus will be the study of color blending, looking at the unique relationship complementary colors have, to create effects in weaving water. Finishing and presentation of tapestries will also be covered.
Ruth Manning maintains a daily practice of tapestry weaving in her studio. Her technique is based on European traditions mixed with ancient Middle Eastern techniques, combined to weave the stories she wants to tell. Ruth has shown her work in exhibits both at home and abroad, and shares her passion for the craft whenever she can, teaching students in conference, workshop and private settings. www.ruthmanningtapestry.com
