Fiona Hutchison
Uncharted Waters
Thinking and Weaving: Tapestry 3 Ways
with Fiona Hutchison
In Fiona’s workshop students will learn strategies to ensure that their designs, and the concepts underlying their designs, come together successfully with the materials and weaving techniques to create a visually rich and dynamic tapestry.
Fiona studied tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art, before pursuing a career as an artist/maker and teacher. A founding member of European Tapestry Forum and Scottish Tapestry Artist Regrouped, Fiona has exhibited throughout the UK, Japan, Canada, Australia and Europe.
Jennifer Sargent
Mountain and Garden
Single Tapestry: Double Warp
Jennifer Sargent
In Jennifer’s workshop, we will consider the artistic choices presented by working with differing setts and open areas of warp and how this particular materiality can be employed in the service of over-all design and the ideas behind the imagery.
Jennifer discovered tapestry at the Scheuer Tapestry Studio in New York, working there for two years. She taught fibers at the University of North Texas for four years and at Memphis College of Art for 12 years, where she was also Director of Exhibitions.
