Introduction to Tapestry Weaving - Collingswood (2/18 Skip)

Introduction to Tapestry Weaving - Collingswood (2/18 Skip)

NOTE: There will be no class on February 18.

In this course, students will learn the essentials of tapestry weaving. We will use a frame loom to create hand woven tapestry wall hangings. We will cover material selection, tools, warping a loom, various stitches and knots, shapes, negative space, removing a weaving from the loom and various finishing techniques. Intermediate weavers may enjoy the refresher, or work independently with technical support.

Loom kits will be available for student use during class. If students would like to purchase their kit, they are $55 and include:

• 14 inch loom

• comb

• pick up stick

• thread needle

• weaving needle

• enough warp thread for first weaving
