This weekend workshop will introduce you to the basic skills involved in creating a woven tapestry, from warping up a simple frame loom to exploring flat woven techniques creating shapes, lines and colour blending.

You will be working with a range of traditional materials of a cotton warp and wool weft. When you are comfortable working with these materials you can go on to explore the variety of surface qualities that can be achieved by using a wider range of materials such as cotton, linen, sisal and paper.

You will learn to

• Set up a simple frame loom

• Construct a woven tapestry exploring a range of warp settings and weft thicknesses

• Control your weft tension/how to keep straight edges

• Create shapes, lines and curves

• Dealing with slits/interlocking weft

• Develop ideas for design

• Finishing and presenting your work
