About This Class

In this class World traveler, Anne Jantz will show you how to complete a tapestry weaving on a large metal ring. Anne learned to weave in Sweden, and then took classes in Belgium and Australia. Anne is passionate about weaving tapestries. She describes the experience as painting with yarn. Ring weaving is a type of off-loom weaving. It is a convenient and inexpensive alternative to weaving on a loom. You can carry your ring and the yarn anywhere to do your work. Rings are not only inexpensive, they are also all ready to hang once your weaving is done. First, Anne will show you how to put the warp strings onto the ring, which is the inside structure for the tapestry. For this first experience Anne will have you apply a radial warp. Then she will demonstrate how to apply the weft, which is the part of the weaving that goes across, over and under the warp strings and becomes the face of the tapestry. Tapestry weaving is a weft-faced type of weaving, which means you don't see the warp except at the ends of the weaving. Then Anne will demonstrate plain weaving (also called tabby weaving), soumak, and rya. She will also demonstrate how to accent your piece with beading as a possible option. Adding fringe is another option. You will finish up with a gorgeous wall hanging you will be proud to show to your family and friends.
