Workshop Announcement: The Art of Tapestry. This 3-day tapestry workshop with Jean Pierre Larochette and Yael Lurie will be held at the Williamsburg Settlement Clubhouse, 1602 Hoyt Lane, Katy, TX, on Friday, Oct. 24, Sat, Oct. 25, and Sunday, Oct. 26. A power point presentation will be given on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 6:00 pm. (location to be announced). We’re looking for a lecture location that is central, so lots of folks can come and see these incredible tapestries and the artists who create them.
The workshop fee is $265.00, and there will be a small fee for yarn ($5.00). Students bring their own looms, warped in advance, and their own tools for weaving (see the description below). Jean Pierre and Lael will have some of their small tapestries on view, as well as their new book which they will be selling.
The book is titled, The Tree of Lives, Adventures Between Warp and Weft. It has 350 pages with 23 black and white photos and 3 color illustrations. To sign up for the workshop, come to the lecture on Thursday, Oct. 23, and provide a deposit of $132.00 to hold your space.
