Course Description: In this final workshop of six, students can investigate, colour, blending and hatching in one piece while also investigating the illusion of movement in their tapestries. If students wish to develop their knowledge learnt in week 2 of overlay effects then they can reintroduce this with the hatching at this stage. This workshop is designed to have more freedom to explore all of the techniques learnt in the preceding weeks but with a skills based undertone to it. By the end of the workshop you will have completed a small tapestry sample.
Please Note: Students should have an intermediate level of knowledge of hatching and blending, or have completed the Stage 1, 2 & 3 Hatching to do this workshop.
