Course Description

In this exciting and lively three day tapestry weaving workshop students will investigate lettering. The group will be encouraged to learn the basic building techniques which are the foundation for creating type or writing. We will look at contemporary examples from the tutors own practice and other artists who use text in their work. You will have an opportunity to explore different typefaces or a more fluid handwritten script and observe the transformation into the woven form. You can investigate this through your own initials or by weaving a word. Examples of some typefaces will be avaliable as reference in the class, students are also encouraged to bring any examples they particularly like.

By the end of the course you will have completed one or two samples. The group will work on pre-warped frames either provided by the tutor or if you prefer you can bring your own frame. There will be a stock of wools available to students, all equipment will be available to borrow. If you would prefer to buy some equipment and wools this will be possible.

This workshop is for four students only and will take place in Weftfaced's own tapestry studio at Mill Studio.

Adults 18 and over only please.
