A good tapestry begins with a good foundation. Learn the building blocks of tapestry weaving starting with a strong, even warp. Learn various methods of creating shapes and joining them together by practicing slits, diagonals and vertical curves. By the last class you will understand the foundational skills of tapestry making, including how to create your own design, how to finish and display your artwork.


Note: In addition to tuition, there is a $25 supply fee.  The fee must be paid directly to Nancy McRay on the first day of the workshop.  The supply fee is waived, should you bring your own loom (10 inch wide tapestry loom), warp, and weft.

When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session.
