This summer school is aimed at weavers who would like to scale up their weaving, from small frame loom to something larger. How do we decide what size to weave, and what do we need to consider when scaling up a design for tapestry?

We will begin the week by selecting and developing a design to be scaled up to a larg(er) tapestry. It could be a detail from a design or something you have already woven but wish to explore on a larger scale. After scaling up your design and drawing a cartoon, we will go on to consider the set and size of the warp, the thickness of the weft and how this impacts on the quality of the woven surface.
