Claudia Chase began weaving tapestry in 1984 on a rigid heddle loom and with only her imagination to guide her. As a self-taught tapestry weaver, she made every mistake possible. A few years later Claudia began mastering tapestry techniques and bought a suitable tapestry floor loom which drastically changed the quality of her work. In 1989 she was juried into the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and began selling her tapestries in the League stores. As tapestry took over more and more of her life, Claudia's tapestries found their way into galleries, office buildings, churches and private homes. She began teaching tapestry soon after developing the Mirrix Loom in 1996. A couple of years later, Claudia discovered that the Mirrix loom could also double as a fantastic bead loom. It is then she discovered the joy of weaving with those lovely little globes. Claudia began teaching bead weaving at various stores that sold the Mirrix Loom and at her New Hampshire studio.
Claudia has won various awards for her tapestries. She has had a couple of one-woman exhibits in galleries. Her work can be seen in galleries on both coasts. Recently, she has focused on bead work and bead and tapestry combined. She continues to teach at her studio and at other venues such as galleries and stores.
