Tapestry Weaving for Beginners with Fiona Nisbet
Come for a day and learn about weaving on a small frame to create an imaginative wall-hanging using a selection of yarns and fibres. It's easy and fun! You will learn a variety of techniques which give different effects and you will learn about mixing colours and yarns. These techniques are applicable for all kinds of weaving so if you already weave you might pick up some useful hints and tips! Equipment can be bought at the end of the workshop. Fiona is an Ashford dealer. She sells both spinning and weaving equipment plus yarns and fibres. Others Textile workshops available including Dyeing with Synthetic and Natural Dyes, Weaving, Spinning and Felting. Contact her for more details.
What's included in the price?
The workshop will be in my studio, from 10.30am to 4pm. I will provide everything required for the day, plus a light lunch, refreshments and home-made scones. Come and have a fun day out. Due to the Coronavirus restrictions I am only teaching 1 or 2 people per workshop in my studio so you'll get plenty of help and attention. If you've been to one of my workshops before please will you leave a review. I look forward to seeing you again.

I love colour and texture and using my own hand-dyed, hand-spun yarns from natural fibres, local sheep and alpaca fleece, to create my weavings. In 1988 having been spinning for about 5 years I gained a post-graduate Diploma in Handloom, Weaving, Spinning and Dyeing at Bradford University and have been running Textile workshops for the last 25 years.
