The Distance Learning program is designed for intermediate tapestry weavers who want to pursue an in depth study of a tapestry topic with guidance and mentoring from a more experienced tapestry weaver. An intermediate weaver is defined as someone who can warp a loom and who has woven several small tapestries or samplers. This is meant to be a self directed and well-defined program of study. Students are encouraged to narrow the range of study so that it can be completed within one year. Contact: Education@americantapestryalliance.org
The Helping Hands distance learning program is designed for beginning tapestry weavers who want to begin exploring tapestry with guidance and mentoring from a more experienced tapestry weaver. The student must be an ATA Circle member. A beginning weaver is defined as someone who has little experience or one who has completed an introductory level workshop. This program will introduce students to warping a loom, shape building, warp and weft balance, and beginning cartoon development. Contact: email@example.com.
