About the Course

Learn the basics of tapestry weaving and make a gorgeous textured wallhanging with Barbara.

Barbara is a mainly self taught fibre enthusiast. A retired qualified teacher she has now got time to develop the textile dreams she has always wanted to explore.

• 3 weaving stitches
• How to keep your edges straight
• Weave a simple shape into the piece (round or triangle)
• How to take it off the loom
