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.
