Question from Anna K.
How large is the project you make?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Anna! In the Tapestry After Workshop, students work on a small loom approximately 6 1/2" x 9 1/2". Tapestry weaving is a slow-process art, so this is a great size to get started learning the techniques. Students will be able to take home this loom to finish their tapestry at home. The Tapestry 4-week class uses a much larger loom since there is 4x the amount of class time. Hope this helps!

Question from anonymous
Do you leave with a finished product?
Answer from Susan T. Verified Student
I left with my smal loom and supplies (all included in class), but only got about 1/3 done. Apparently only 1 person has ever finished the whole thing in class, because she already knew how and knew what she wanted to produce, but I could easily finish the project at home.

Alysa was terrific. She answered every question - over & over again. She was very clear in showing us techniques & in guiding us through weaving. I loved this class - the time flew by. Thank you. Thank you.

Great instructor, knowledgeable and encouraging. Class size was just right. The only thing I would change would be to have the class meet for two nights so that we could finish a whole, small tapestry. But I learned more than enough to begin weaving on my own and that’s exactly what I was hoping for from the course.

It was great! Small class, easy to understand, and now I have a super cool tapestry (and new skill!).

Learned a lot, was able to try out new techniques, ask questions, learn from peers in a relaxing setting. Just what I was hoping for.

The instructor "Ahna" seemed very irritated from the start of the class. She did not have time to decompress from her day job and seemed to take her anger and frustrations on the class. Her passive-aggressive attitude set an oppressive tone for this informal workshop. Questions and mild requests were met with adolescent eye rolls and the entire demonstration was confusing because she lacked the ability to properly articulate with language and her use of inappropriate material for tactile demonstrations. Again, many of these issues may have been resolved if the atmosphere of the class was "open" to some Q&A. The instructor literally felt like she phoned it in - she was not in the mood for this workshop after her stressed day at work. And spent the majority of the time on her phone texting. We all had a hard day at work. (I spent all day deposing at a Grand Jury hearing.) Sad to say, this workshop did not add to my curiosity for this new venue; Textile Art Center. The tone for the whole environment was oppressive, depressing and a bit exhausting. This workshop might be more suitable for teenagers who are used to the machinations of passive-aggressive mean girls but for busy professional adults wanting to learn a new skill set for de-stressing from a very strenuous work day - not recommended. Not fun. Terrible experience - I would not recommend this workshop to anyone with self-esteem. Very immature and unprofessional instructor!!
