Woven wall hangings are taking over walls everywhere! They’re a great way to introduce yourself to weaving as the looms we’ll use are simpler, portable and more affordable than a table or floor loom. Tapestry weaving is a great way to express creativity as you can create shapes and add texture in free form, exactly to your liking.
