Tapestry Weaving #2


Here you can see three tapestries in various stages of development.  This activity takes place during a class in the Senior Center in Eldorado, New Mexico. The class is being taught by Lynne whom you met here.
Tomorrow I'll show you how the students begin.

  2. Love the look of the tapestries Kate, I think it would be such a calming pastime, but patience would be required, that could be a problem!!

  7. I like...but can't imagine someone having the patience to sit and do that work for hours. I'm glad there are those who do, though!

  9. Talented artists at work here! I agree with Sharon. I like the one on the lower right best, but all are so well done! Nice of them to let you photograph their work. . .I hope they're proud.

  11. I love the look of tapestry weaving. I even have a tapestry loom...but I have never used it. Maybe this will encourage me to get it out. :)

  15. Looks like it takes a lot of work & patience! They are turning out beautifully, though! I love the top one! Hmmm, do they sell their works when they are finished?
