Make it Wild: Plein Air Tapestry Weaving

June 29, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Learn or improve your tapestry skills while surrounded by the natural beauty of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. While weaving on a Navajo-style loom, you will have the opportunity to select fibers hand-dyed by Doris from the plants and minerals that will play an important part in your tapestry design. Weaving en plein air allows you to capture the effects of weather and light that would otherwise be difficult to produce in a studio environment.

This class will take place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on June 29, at the Museum on the Sculpture Trail. If there is rain, the class will take place in the classroom. Please note that this weaving class will be $80 due to the length of the class and nature of the materials.
