Events > Class in Meredith – Tapestry Weaving Basics with Lisa Almeida

Event Description:

Join artist Lisa Almeida for a class on Saturday, May 18th, 2024 at the Meredith Fine Craft Gallery.

What to expect: In this class, you will learn the basics of how to create images with fiber using a simple tapestry loom.
You will weave a tiny tapestry from start to finish and leave with your loom warped and ready to start a new project at home.

Who should attend: Anyone interested in learning the foundational skills of tapestry weaving is encouraged to attend. If you’ve never touched a loom in your life, this class is for you. If you are an experienced hand-weaver, you will discover a new way to enjoy your loom.

About the Instructor: Lisa Almeida discovered tapestry weaving in 2017. She was immediately captivated by the joy of creating images with fiber and has been weaving nearly every day since. She is a member and past Director of Exhibitions of the American Tapestry Alliance, and a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen. Her work is sold and exhibited locally and nationally.

Materials fee includes:

  • A wooden tapestry lap loom with accessories (beater comb, shuttle stick, and tapestry needles) – all of which you will keep.
  • Enough cotton warp and wool to complete the class project and another like it at home.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please contact the gallery at 603-279-7920 to register. Those who wish to take the class MUST sign up by Monday, May 13th.
