About the Course

Tapestry Weaver Margaret Jones will be teaching this workshop on how to finish tapestries well.
We all love weaving our tapestries but the finishing is something we do rarely compared with the amount of weaving we get done. A bad finish can ruin a good tapestry, a good finish can help a not so good tapestry shine.
During this workshop we will look at design (it is a good idea to know how you are going to hang your tapestry before you start weaving), blocking out, using tape round the edges, backing, framing and hanging to create a good finish. We will also look at how to back shaped tapestries.
Suitable for all with some weaving experience. Materials and equipment are provided and different yarns and materials available for experimenting with.
Limited parking is available on site—please walk-in if possible from nearby road side parking
