Intro to Tapestry Weaving Workshop

Explore colour and geometric and organic form while designing and weaving your own 8 x 10 inch wall tapestry. This workshop will guide students through the warping of a basic frame loom and introduce them to techniques such as plain weave, soumak stitch, rya knots, and slit joins. I will teach foundational weaving skills and over the course of the workshop student will get a strong start on their first tapestry weaving. The aim of the workshop is for everyone to leave with a basic understanding of the tools, techniques and terminology of tapestry weaving and the confidence to continue exploring the craft on their own.
