The last day of the class is always frantic with students completing the weaving of their tapestries, cutting them off the looms (to applause from all), tucking and trimming ends at the back, and finishing off for display. Most were mounted on a fabric-covered foam core board that Lena Grace prepared for each, measured to fit their individual tapestries.
A show of works from different studios ends the week's experience at the Folk School. Everyone loves to see what's been happening in other workshops since often it's hard to get around during the week to see others at work. The tapestry display table was the star of the show (of course, other teachers and students felt their own display was the star--actually there were stars all around on Friday afternoon!)
Here's the happy group of tapestry weavers at the end of the wonderful week at
