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. Description and contact information located in our Members section here.
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 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. Find a full description and contact information here.
ATA schedules Educational Retreats in conjunction with a national conference to be announced for 2012.
The Educational Workshops take place during the non-conference years at a unique location. This year we had Lisa Trujillo teaching "Chimayo Weaving" in April, 2011. For more information visit our Educational Workshops page.
