April 23, 2016 – Michael Rohde, Tapestry

Michael Rohde, renowned tapestry weaver, has plied and taught his art for more than 40 years (see his website www.michaelrohde.com). He will teach “Four Selvedge” and “Wedge Weaving” techniques.


The location will be the studio of Barbara Shapiro, 510 Darrell Road, Hillsborough, CA 94010. (Please park ON the sidewalk, and DO NOT block the mailbox!)

The workshop is full. Please bring a small (tapestry or rigid heddle or bead type) loom – unwarped. If you ordered a loom from Micael, he will bring it.

Bring also:  scissors, tapestry or Navaho beater or an old kitchen fork, note taking materials.

Optional equipment: tapestry or blunt needles, small shuttles or tapestry bobbins, small bits of colorful tapestry weight yarn, 900-1200 yds/lb.

Barbara will have tea and hot water. Bring bottled water if you like, instant coffee if you like, snacks if you want something other than trail-mixes. And bring a lunch since there is nothing close by. It will be Passover.
