Designing for Tapestry in Westport - Three Days
Tapestry Weaving inspired by the fascinating New Zealand bush and beaches of the West Coast, Buller District. You will be taken by master weaver and practicing artist Marilyn Rea-Menzies for short strolls into the local bush, along the river and beaches, to find inspiration for a series of designs that can be woven as tapestry.
Images from nature have dominated themes in tapestry and other textile mediums for hundreds of years, and you will be acknowledging this continuum in the workshop.
This three-day workshop covers a range of design and tapestry techniques, commencing with your own collection of either sketches or photographs as a starting point. Marilyn will guide you to translate your images into compositions of one, or a small series of works using the design and technical and aspects required for weaving tapestry.
This workshop is open to beginners and for those with prior tapestry weaving experience, who under Marilyn's tutorage will take your artistic abilities to the next level. Everyone will work at their own pace.
This small group workshop is held at Marilyn's private studio in Westport, there are a range of accommodation options nearby. Enquire here
