As a weaver, tapestry was one of my first endeavors, and has remained a favorite of mine, particularly when hand-dyed and hand-woven wool makes up the composition of the piece. I have made many tapestries over the years, some large, some displayed a range of random techniques, and others expressed a visual idea and were executed as a more straightforward technique in their “stitchery”.
Here are a few of my larger tapestries…click each image to enlarge.
I reference these small pieces as “Samplers” because of their size. They are created with hand-dyed wool, positioned to reference some subject or scene. These are worked on a very small loom which students use when I teach my tapestry class.
