Rebecca Smith teaches two 2-day workshops that incorporate seed beads and wire. The tapestries undulate and capture light in unique ways. Tapestries woven with this technique can be free-standing or framed, creating beautiful decorative woven art. In this workshop you will learn Rebecca’s techniques for weaving with seed beads, weaving with eccentric weft, and incorporating wire. You will be able to create your own small tapestry. The same workshop is offered twice: July 7-8, Thursday-Friday, and again July 9-10, Saturday-Sunday, 9am-4pm. $180 for the two-day workshop plus $20 materials fee paid directly to instructor, Rebecca Smith. Maximum class size for each is 12.
About the Instructor:
Rebecca Smith studied tapestry weaving with one of the great modern masters, Archie Brennan, in whose workshops she learned the fundamentals of good tapestry weaving. Inspiration and exploration led her away from traditional tapestry weaving. Although tapestries are a form of cloth, her desire was to expand them into a 3-dimensional form. She developed her signature style of blending yarn, beads, and wire into a single composition. Her work has been shown in juried exhibitions throughout the US.
