The ancient art of tapestry weaving has gotten a makeover with modern color palettes and super fun fibers, learn how to make your own small wall hanging on a birch tapestry loom in this one day workshop! All the materials you need to create your wall hanging are included and we’ll teach you how to set up your warp, weave a plain weave as well as a few decorative techniques and finish off your weaving- including tassels and fringe!

We will supply enough yarn for students, but if you want more control over your color palette you are welcome to bring your own yarn! Chunky yarns- worsted weight and bulky- work best for this project.

Skills Covered: Setting up your warp, materials and tools needed to weave, intro weaving techniques, incorporating different weights of yarn and textures, finishing your weaving.
