In this chilled workshop we will cover the basics of Tapestry Weaving in a friendly setting. You will learn how to start your weave (warping the loom), learn the basic stitches of tapestry weaving and how to safely take your woven fabric off the loom. You will also learn how to make fringing and learn tips on colour, composition and design. We will use a variety of natural and man made fibres: roving, cotton, silk, raffia and upcycled materials – and have fun combining them to create a beautiful piece of art for your wall.

We will be using locally made bamboo looms and weaving tools designed by Miss Helen, with the option to buy at the end of the class.

What you'll get

You will learn how to start and finish your weaving, basic shapes and stitches and embellishments such as fringing, beading and pom poms.

Your very own unique beautiful woven wallhanging and the knowledge to go forth and weave more! There is also the option to purchase your laser cut bamboo weaving frame.

what to bring

You can bring a special stick to hang your completed weave on ( approx 25-35cm) and any special knick knacks you’d like to embellish your weaving with (bells, beads, ribbon etc).
