José’s woven piece is finished!

José Mendoza is the recipient of the 2011 Scholarship for Creativity & Experimentation from Stories of Hope. Between January and May José was to work on one piece that would be for display and for sale. He has completed the tapestry and has decided to have it framed in a shadow box as it is not very large (approx. 24″X24″).  José told me he has incorporated all the techniques he has learned from his learning to weave as a child up to his experiences today. The very fine yarns he worked with are all dyed with natural dyes. This tapestry will be on display at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca for the month of June. The tapestry is for sale and he will let me know what the price will be.  When the tapestry sells  José will keep 90% of the sale price with 10% going back to Stories of Hope as seed money towards the 2012 scholarship. If you are interested in purchasing José’s tapestry please e-mail me at linda@theyarntree.com
