  • PART ONE: Zoom Blending Workshop 23rd January 2021 10:00 - 11:30 BST

    £30.00Price

    In this online blending and hatching workshop participants can explore the wonders of colour theory and blending for tapestry weaving.  These beautiful weaving techniques allow you to create the most subtle of transitions of colour from dark to light or red to orange without any obvious line or shape. The blending technique can be used with hatching, which allows you to change colour from left to right of your tapestry. 

     

    In part one you will explore blending techniques and splicing threads together. In part two you can explore hatching. 

     

    Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which you can achieve colour transitions.
