While the tapestry of society has become increasingly complex, the basic principles of weaving and fiber arts have not changed. In these Saturday workshops, witness the emergence of fun patterns and forms through simple repetition and experimentation with fibers. In the Studio, try your hand at working with yarn and create a nontraditional tapestry of your own. 

Workshops are developed in collaboration with Polly Thayer Starr Artist Series visiting artist Shane Maxwell.
