Founded over 100 years ago, Dovecot has created some of the most high profile tapestries of the past decade in collaboration with outstanding international artists. Now you can become part of the wonderful Dovecot atmosphere during this one-day weaving experience.

Aimed at absolute beginners, the workshop introduces the traditional materials of a cotton warp and wool weft as well as the basic skills involved in creating a woven tapestry, highlighting a range of weaving techniques. You will receive expert tuition from professional weaver Fiona Hutchison and at the end of the day you are invited to sit back and admire your hard work with a glass of Dovecot fizz.

Price: includes equipment* and glass of fizz

*The fee includes the tapestry yarn and use of equipment during the workshop. Attendees have a 10% discount in Dovecot Shop, should they want to acquire materials.
