About this experience

This workshop will move beyond the basics and explore more intermediate skills, fiber selection, and designing. The finished piece can be used as practice or the beginning of a wall hanging, pillow, or pouch! Explore the creation of tapestry weaving from start to finish! In this class you will extend your knowledge of materials, tools, warping, basic designing and weaving techniques, finishing, and care.


Price includes thoughtfully sourced materials (no additional materials fees). You will leave the class with your own little frame loom and tools to get you started. Students also get a one-time use 15% off discount card for use during and up to two weeks following the last class session!

MELONIE CAVALLARO is a fiber artist in South Philadelphia. Having studied fine art and art history in Italy, her fiber art combines her approach to classic oil painting and her passion for travel and world culture; combining global textures, form, and color into one medium. After the birth of her son in 2015, Melonie began transitioning from oil painting to textiles and quickly found this new tangible medium to be her most expressive. Melonie has exhibited her artwork in galleries throughout the US, Europe and the UK, such as: Gallery Café Art Bar, Florence, Italy; Eubie Blake National Jazz institute and Cultural Center, The Galleries at Moore; and Philadelphia's own Chris’s Jazz Cafe.
