Reflections and Investigations
Workshop, 17th–18th March 2017 Workshop 1: ‘Let’s start at the beginning’: teaching you all the basic things you need to know for woven tapestry from learning to warp a frame loom and weave the shapes you use, creating a sampler that you can always refer back to when you get home.
Workshop 2: ‘And now…?’: a continuation of day one or for students who have already done a basic course. You will discuss different warp thickness and how to warp them onto frames, changes in thickness of yarns and different yarns used to create textures as well as looking at designing from collecting, drawing, cartoon making. You will then have the tools and knowledge to start a tapestry – taking the terror out of designing to create the beginnings of your own masterpiece.
