Tapestry Weaving 101
In this one-day workshop students learn the fundamentals of the art tapestry weaving and gain a solid understanding of the process of warping up and weaving with multiple techniques like shape building, colour blending and textural techniques. We also talk about how to choose yarn for your projects, how to finish your tapestry as well as how to troubleshoot tapestry-specific issues.
Students will leave with a good start on a project in colours of their choosing from a range of naturally dyed yarns made by Janna.
For materials students have the choice between:
1) $40 materials fee which includes warp and weft yarn and a 14-page workbook and requires students to bring their own loom (a $20 PVC loom can be made by following Janna’s video instructions
2) $110 materials fee which includes all the supplies in option one plus a 12" X 18" handmade wooden tapestry loom as pictured above.
