Tapestry Design Basics and Beyond

Planning and Weaving with Confidence
Tommye McClure Scanlin


Renowned master weaver Tommye Scanlin offers 60 step-by-step "explorations" that lead you from understanding design concepts in your head to using them on your loom. Be inspired to explore "weavable" ways to manage line, shape, colour, texture, emphasis, balance, rhythm and more for results that bring your tapestries to a new level.

In Part 1, dive into the fundamentals of design. Parts 2 and 3 hold explorations – exercises with a tapestry twist. Part 4 teaches ways to turn designs into cartoons. A resource treasure trove offers ideas for finishing tapestries (essential to the design's completeness), helpful templates, glossaries and other core information to carry forward on your creative path.
