Tapestry Weavers South workshop with Mary Zicafoose

Tapestry Weavers South presents Mary Zicafoose to teach 3 workshops in Gainesville, Georgia, USA on April 18, 19, & 20, 2013.  Each workshop may be taken separately or two may be taken or all three!  A great concept for a workshop, I feel.  From what I've heard from others who've taken workshops from Mary, there will be wonderful inspiration and ideas flying about.

Here's the description of the workshops:

Thursday, April 18--"Inspiration, The Zen of Weaving"
"This one-day workshop abounds with handouts and resources to nourish and nurture the busy artist and weaver..."

Friday, April 19--"Design, The Language of Art"
"This one-day class will focus on the sequential steps required to develop your unique visual ideas into dynamic tapestry and rug designs"

Saturday, April 200--"Color, The Language of Art"
"This one-day intensive dip into color will saturate your palette.... In referring to the work of colorist, Josef Albers, students create a color workbook of 245 personal studies...."

Additionally, there will be an exhibit by members of Tapestry Weavers South on display at the Quinlan Art Center during the time of the workshops.

If you're not a TWS member, please get in touch with me at to ask for the workshop chair, Nancy Dugger's, contact information.


  1. I live in Winston,NC and want to learn the art of tapestry and weaving. I am looking for a local workshop.

    1. I'll be teaching a 2 1/2 week class at Penland in July. I'm not sure who might be teaching near you, however. Do you belong to a weaving group? Many areas have weaving guilds that sponsor workshops. If there's one nearby possibly you might find a tapestry workshop there. There are also a couple of good tapestry DVDs--a set by Archie Brennan and one by Nancy Harvey. Both would be good ways to begin if you find there isn't a workshop easily available.
