In this one day workshop Fiona will guide you through the basic steps of tapestry weaving. Lovely cotton and linen yarns in a range of colours will be available to create a small sampler mounted and ready to take away at the end of the day.
Tapestry weaving does not require complicated equipment. Using an upright frame the warp and weft threads are brought together in a simple over and under plain weave using only your hands and a small wooden bobbin to create the weave.
The workshop is suitable for fans of other textile techniques who may want try their hand at something new, while beginners will enjoy trying something completely different. The emphasis is on colour and fun.
Students will need to bring a small sharp pair of scissors. Yarns are provided but you can bring your own if you want to weave something more personal.
