Learn the basics of tapestry weaving and create your own woven wall hanging at this hands-on Melbourne course!

Over three weeks, you will learn the different aspects of tapestry weaving with tapestry weaver and fibre artist Catherine Hallam. If you have a tapestry already in the making and would like to try out just one of the classes in this course, select the 'single class' option when booking.

In this beginner-friendly course, you will start with the basics of warping up, weaving and creating designs on a frame loom. You will also learn how to create and work with shapes in your designs, as well as techniques for creating texture and experimenting with colours.

Tapestry is a versatile craft that allows you to explore your own style, so once you get the hang of these techniques, the possibilities are endless!

Overview of the course:

April 8th: Basics of tapestry weaving
In this class, you will learn what materials and fibres you can weave with and what tools you can use. You will learn techniques like warping up, rya knots, basic weaving and basic design.

April 15th: Shape and texture
In this class, you will learn how to work with different shapes and textures. You will learn what to consider with vertical shapes, creating circles and rounded shapes. You will learn techniques like interlocking, dovetailing, and sewing up slits and texture techniques like soumak stitch, rya loops and using rya knots to create texture.

April 22nd: Colour and finishing techniques
In this class, you will learn about advanced colour techniques like half passing and colour mixing. We will practice finishing techniques like hemstitch, taking your piece off the loom, tucking/tying in ends and hanging your piece.

In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!
