March 10, 2018 – Rebecca Mezoff
On-line Tapestry Study Group Kick-off
Rebecca Mezoff is offering the guild a deep discount on the price of her on-line tapestry course. Her Warp and Weft: Learning the Structure of Tapestry course is offered in three parts. We will begin with Part 1. The course is intended as a six to nine-month course of study for those with no experience with tapestry or for those who have some knowledge of tapestry but need a structured review of foundational principals. Participants will have access to Rebecca’s extensive video instruction library, PDF handouts with diagrams and photographic examples, as well a group discussion forum. Photos of your work can be submitted for feedback from Rebecca. Live video calls are also a possibility for an additional fee of $50 (total). For the best outcome, participants should spend a few hours each week on study and weaving.
Technical requirements: You must have access to broadband, and a Mac, PC or iPad. If you can view a standard you tube video you will be fine.
Equipment: You should have a floor or frame loom suitable for tapestry weaving. Rebecca has posted a materials list here: Materials List.
You must sign up for this class using the regular guild form.The workshop fee will be $25, paid to the Guild. Names and email addresses will be sent to Rebecca. She will then send an invitation to register for her course at the discounted rate. The course fee is paid directly to Rebecca upon registration.
Instructor Bio: When she wasn’t digging in the sand in her backyard in New Mexico, Rebecca Mezoff grew up making dolls out of her dad’s old socks. Now she makes large-format tapestries and is often found weaving in her pajamas which she affectionately calls her “home pants”. She also creates online courses and occasionally she leaves the studio to teach weavers in the real world about color and technique in tapestry. Her current work focuses on human perception and the long scale of geologic time. Her studio is in Fort Collins, Colorado. You can find out more about her on her website and blog at rebeccamezoff.com.
