In this exciting and lively one day tapestry weaving workshop with master weaver Caron Penney, students will investigate basic weaving techniques suitable for beginners including hatching and colour blending, the foundations to tapestry. By the end of the workshop students will have completed one sample. The group will work on pre-warped frames provided by the tutor, a stock of wools will be available and all equipment will be available to borrow. Students should bring a notebook and pen.
