About the Course
Discover the wonderful art of tapestry weaving at my studio set in the beautiful East Devon countryside. I offer 1 day courses suitable for beginners. Tapestry weaving is a traditional hand craft conducted on a wooden frame loom and used to create pictures, wall hangings, bags and cushion covers . You will learn how to warp your own loom, weave your own textile , finish and create your very own woven wall hanging . Your sampler is made by weaving the yarn in and out. You will learn lots of weaving tips and techniques when you enrol in your course.
The, ‘Love Your Loom’, One Day course, will teach you a variety of tapestry weaving techniques on a standing frame loom including: tabby, pick and pick, hatching, rya knots, soumak, shapes, colour blending, outlining. I teach both modern tapestry and traditional picture styles – the choice is entirely yours! The course is suitable for total beginners and those with some experience are also welcome.
At the end of the day you will have completed your unique woven wall hanging to take home. Yarns, frame looms and equipment will be provided for the day.
