A freestyle, relaxing and repetitive textile craft for absolute beginners to try their hand at.

Tapestry is a form of textile art using a frame loom and needle to create intricate pictures and designs.

A wonderful craft to keep your mind and fingers active.

 

 

What will I learn?

In this group workshop you will learn anatomy of the tapestry loom and about essential weaving equipment.

You will dress the loom with cotton warp so it is set for weaving and learn about the different fibres available for you to use to make a really amazing piece of art for your wall.

You will learn tabby weave, (plain weave), the easiest way to make tassels, (rya knots) and a few more simple stitches like sumac (the pretty plait) to help give your woven art attitude and texture. 

Take your loom home

This workshop includes a frame loom for you to take home, designed by Herbert, and made by Brooke, a tapestry comb, needle and you will receive instructions sent to your inbox #savetheplanet, so you can continue your weaving when you get home. 

How many yarns?

There is a rainbow of yarn of all different fibres and weights for you to experiment with.

Our yarn wall holds over 300 yarns, then there is roving and scraps and goodness knows what else you can find in the studio to play around with.
