Working with a cartoon: Tapestry Weaving Workshop

The Mill Studio | Ford, Arudnel

FOUR DAYS: DATES FOR 2020 TO BE CONFIRMED  

In this lively and varied workshop you will concentrate on weaving with

a cartoon. Using a guide to create tapestry is a traditional way of working in tapestry weaving, and many of the professional workshops in the World use this method of translating an image. This way of working is normally used with a flat weave technique but other ways of working are possible. We will start by considering the design process, the scale of the work, and interpretation. 

Times: 10 - 4.30pm, lunch 12.30 - 1.30pm

Level: Beginners with a small amount of experience to intermediate.

Tutor: Caron Penney
