Tapestry weaving at Cambridge Art Makers

Cambridge Art Makers Tapestry Weaving with Paula Armstrong


Tapestry weaving is a colourful and tactile method of creating a beautiful and unique textiles. It is a weft based weaving technique which can be used to create pictures varying from realistic, representational designs, to minimal and abstract pieces.

This course is for those who have already done a 6-week course with Paula, and are fluent with warping up a frame independently (Or for anyone new to Cambridge Art Makers who can demonstrate their proficiency of the same). Paula intends this course to be student led so that individual interests can be pursued. She will demonstrate further techniques such as more advanced colour blending, creating overlapping shapes with transparency and shading. Participants will be guided to create a simple design of their own and learn how to interpret it.
