Fri 11 & Sat 12 Aug | 10.00am – 4.00pm | £55.00
In this two-day workshop you will learn the foundation skills of tapestry weaving on a simple frame loom. As well as covering the basic techniques, the workshop will encourage individual expression and experimentation.
On day one we will focus on learning the basics of plain weave, creating shapes and textural techniques such as rya knotting and sumak, to create a small sampler. Working at your own pace, on day two you will have the chance to create a small abstract wall hanging, exploring texture, colour and composition. All materials will be provided but feel free to bring any favourite yarns from your own stash! The workshop is suitable for adults and young people over the age of 16.
