Workshop 1: ‘Let’s start at the beginning’ (Saturday 17 March)
Workshop 2: ‘And now…?’ (Sunday 18 March)

We are pleased to welcome Jilly Edwards the artist behind ‘Joy: Yellow is the New Blue’ exhibition who will be offering 2x one day workshops. Enjoy just one day or a full weekend of textiles.

Workshop 1 will concentrate on teaching you all the basic things you need to know for woven tapestry from learning to warp a frame loom and weave the shapes you use, creating a sampler that you can always refer back to when you get home.

Workshop 2 is a continuation of day one or for students who have already done a basic course. You will discuss different warp thickness and how to warp them onto frames, changes in thickness of yarns and different yarns used to create textures as well as looking at designing from collecting, drawing, cartoon making. You will then have the tools and knowledge to start a tapestry – taking the terror out of designing to create the beginnings of your own masterpiece.
