In this class we will work through a range of stitches, loops, knots and tapestry weaving techniques together building up a landscape picture on a frame loom.
Learn how to create bumps, lumps, waves and spaces in your weaves to make a woven panel that is truly unique in design. A frame loom and all the tools and equipment you need will be provided for you and we will start from the beginning with the warping process. Inspirational landscape photography will be displayed to help inspire our weaving, but of course you are welcome to bring along an image of your own to work from if you prefer.
Most participants manage to finish the bulk of the weaving during the class, but everyone works at
different paces, so you will get to keep the loom and will be aided with enough knowledge to finalise the weaving in your own time.
This is designed to be a fun and informative workshop suitable for beginners to weaving although everyone is welcome to join us!
