Carl Stewart is an artist living in Ottawa. He has an extensive repertoire of works created for solo and group exhibitions in Canada and the US.Using a photograph or other visual reference, students will learn various computer-assisted and freehand methods of transferring images to graph paper to create templates for weaving portraits.

The warp will be 10 to 12 inches wide and in a dark colour of the weaver’s choice. Students will also provide their own cotton weft yarns. The class is limited to 12 students. The workshop fee is $20.00.Send expressions of interest to [email protected]. Those who register will pay a non-refundable $20 deposit.
