Tapestry Weaving – G210641

In Tapestry Weaving, design and weave a tapestry using tapestry techniques and stitches. Tapestry is a woven structure in which the weft-face weave structure pattern is formed by different colored wefts woven back and forth just in their color areas. Tapestry is discontinued weft yarns across the body of the textile to form an image and is usually weft-face plain weave.

    Rose Vigil

    Little did she know that her marriage to Eugene would lead to a love of Spanish traditional textiles. She began her study in 1989 with a course taught by Kristina Wilson and Rachel Brown at the Taos Institute of Art, and about a year later, she started her Associates of Applied Science in Fiber Arts at Northern New Mexico Community College as a part- time student, graduating in May 1995. Together, with her husband, the two are fulfilling a dream of keeping local traditions alive and passing their culture to their weaving community. They do this through joint efforts in completing their weavings. Rose has always had a fascination with the structure of weaving, in which it takes many interlocking threads, all perfectly tensioned, to form a beautiful textile. She finds this true in life itself, it takes everything working in unison to form a finished product, be it a person or a thing. “I feel our traditional work leads to our culture, and this helps us find our identity in society. By learning how our ancestors worked many years ago, we implement our work, keep their traditions alive, and become culture bearers. This, in turn, helps us understand our origins and ourselves.”
