Participants will create their very own woven wall hanging! During this workshop, we’ll cover the basics of tapestry design, weaving with texture and finishing stitches. By the end of our time together, everyone will have created a sampler of stitches and weaves and a one-of-a-kind wall hanging suitable for display, along with the knowledge and confidence to continue to weave.
Age and ability: 14 and older, beginners welcome!
This workshop takes place Sat, Oct 23, from 9:30am–4:30pm.
