Exploring the Visual Heartbeat:
Use of Rhythm in Tapestry Design
tapestry design
This spring we're honored to bring Elizabeth Buckley to our shop for a workshop.

Rhythm is not only integral to the world of music and dance, but also to effective tapestry design. In this workshop, we explore different approaches to visual rhythm through the use of: repetition, progressions, gradations, and contrast in shape, line, value and color. These underlying principles behind rhythm will help you go beyond the flat background to creating a sense of movement and dynamic flow.

BIO:

“Tapestry design is more than copying a photograph or a drawing. It is thinking in the language of the loom and how the combined use of specific techniques can create quality of line, shaped form, and illusory space. “ --Elizabeth Buckley

Elizabeth Buckley’s core curriculum of classes and workshops provides a solid foundation in both theory and technique for her students. Her courses incorporate principles of two-dimensional design and color theory that are relevant to the art of hand-woven tapestry. She draws from multiple traditions—Southwest, Aubusson, Beauvais—as well as knowledge that she has gained directly from master weavers themselves, some of which is not documented in books. She encourages and stretches her students, supporting them as they explore beyond their comfort zones to find and express their own unique voice.
