Beginner Tapestry Weaving - Small Wall Hanging

  • Fern's School of Craft 10350 122St Edmonton, Alberta Canada (map)

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.

GUEST INSTRUCTOR: Danielle F. of @curiousfoxfibres $140

PROJECT: Students will weave a small woven wall hanging

DISCUSSION: Techniques covered include loom set up, plain weave, soumak weave and variations, looped rya knotting and a variety of fringe options.  You will get a chance to experiment with roving and other unconventional materials.  This workshop will end with a discussion about finishing and hanging your piece.
