Join us for a one-day tapestry weaving starter workshop.
Led by an experienced weaver from the weaversbazaar team, either Lin Squires, Dianne Miles or Matty Smith, this event will introduce you to the basic techniques of tapestry weaving by weaving your own sampler.
All materials are provided and you will be working on a ready warped tapestry frame and access to the full range of 150 weaversbazaar yarns to weave with.
At the end of the day you will leave with a sampler of the techniques and enough knowledge to start your own projects if you would like to go further. In additional time the tutor will introduce an approach to design for tapestry and provide information on how to progress an interest in tapestry weaving.
Please register your interest if current dates are not suitable as additional dates can be added
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Refreshments are included but please bring your own pack lunch.
All the materials and tools for weaving are provided on the day but please bring your own scissors, a ruler, a note book and pen.

Lovely venue and great that there was only 6 of us on the course which meant that Lin had time to help us all individually if and when we needed it. Would have been nice to learn how to set up the warp threads but other than this it was a great day which inspired me to carry on at home.
Matty’s workshop was very informative and ideally suited for a beginner. She gave clear instructions and kept a good pace for all abilities, giving extra support when needed or helping others to progress to the next stage. The course was well structured and highly organised, written handouts supplied to reinforce teaching. Further developments were also discussed using students own visual material. I would be keen to sign up to future workshops, or would be interested in a mini programmed progressive course to develop skills, over several weeks or monthly workshops.
