Programs and Workshops

May 13, 2020 | “My Evolution in Tapestry” with David Johnson CANCELLED

Guild Monthly Meeting

9:30am, First Baptist Church

David Johnson

David Johnson produces pictorial tapestry and representational work as well as pattern oriented work -- as demonstrated in his Echo Series of tapestry woven carpets. His pictorial works often address social, political, and spiritual themes. David says he views his art as a form of visual communication carrying a message in a way that transcends language. He writes, “I choose to tell my story in tapestry because of the linear nature of the process. There is a beginning, middle, and end as I travel down the length of my warp. I evolve as an artist.” He is president of the Handweavers Guild of Boulder, CO.

May 13-15, 2020 | “Painting with Soumak Tapestry”, with David Johnson CANCELLED

Guild Workshop

First Baptist Church

Johnson Work

In this workshop, students will learn to weave with soumak knots to create a tapestry that has painterly qualities. Inherent in soumak is the ability to weave in an eccentric way allowing one to break away from the rigid 90-degree orientation of warp to weft. By weaving eccentrically we create hills and valleys as we weave down the length of the warp. Variations in the technique will be explored as the weaving progresses.
