your woven tapestry

Not
to be confused with needle point tapestry, in this workshop you will warp your
loom using vertical threads and then weave across bobbins of coloured
thread. It is an ancient craft
documented on Egyptian pottery and elsewhere and is so therapeutic and
relaxing. An extra bonus is that one can
continue their weaving journey on a four-sided frame loom using an old picture
frame or 4 lengths of wood. In the workshop you will weave a tapestry
approximately 3” by 10” and learn how to design future tapestries incorporating
your own ideas and environment. No
previous experience is needed. All materials are provided and lunch is included on both days.
