Available spots


In this exciting new tapestry weaving workshop you can explore the narrative behind your tapestries. ​ Your narrative may relate to the environment, seasons, politics, humanity, poetry, literature, or a personal story. We will explore how you can convert these ideas into weaving, it maybe that you work in the abstract transferring literature into colour, or your emotional journey into shapes, music into line or politics into words. All you need to bring is your enthusiasm, and any reference material that might be of help to you on your way to making a fantastic tapestry. Date: 27th - 30th June 2024 Time: 10.00am - 4.00pm Venue: Arundel Museum Understanding this course: Every summer we run a weaving workshop which covers a different subject or theme. This year we will be in the Arundel Museum, beside the river Arun in this picturesque town in the South Downs. The course is for students who have done the basics, to advanced weaving students. We hope it will be informative and exciting while enjoyable, relaxed and is a considerate learning experience. What the course covers: * There will be a powerpoint presentation explaining how the tutor and other artists have developed a narrative within their art practices. * Discussion and chat about your narrative. * Cartoons and how they are made. * Warp types and settings suitable for your image. * Translating your ideas into tapestry. * Demonstrations of different weaving techniques from blending, hatching, shaping, how to weave words, lines and many others. * Finishing your tapestry and the options available for mounting your work How the course works: The course will be held at the Arundel Museum in Arundel, West Sussex. It will run from 10am until 4.00pm each day from Thursday - Sunday. The tutor is Caron Penney and fellow tapestry weaver Katharine Swailes will assist the classes. Each day we will take a lunch break for one hour. Arundel is a beautiful town with lots of lunch establishments and accommodation. Will there be any extra costs involved: The car park next to the Arundel Museum is £5.00 per day. There is tea and coffee provided each day, however there are a number of take out establishments in Arundel including the deli Pallant of Arundel, which is a short walk from the classroom.
