Tapestry Weaving

Learn tapestry weaving from our expert tutor, Hannah Rother-Gelder in a friendly, workshop-style environment. Tapestry weaving is a weft-based weaving where the warp is completely covered. The proposed image is marked on the weft as a guide using a cartoon (drawing) behind the warp as a further guide when weaving. Students will be guided through the process of this particular method of weaving.
Beginners welcome. All materials supplied. 

5 inital classes are required in order to build your skills and knowledge of tapestry weaving. After these inital sessions you will become a member of the tapestry weaving group.

Partially supported by a Yarra Grant.

Draw a professional model in our beautiful light-filled studio with easels and tables provided. Bring your own materials or buy paper from us. The pose will be held for the entire session. This class is untutored and suitable for all levels.

Children will have the opportunity to experiment with creative experiences in a range of mediums, and will also be encouraged to explore their own responses to a range of artists’ work and connect to current exhibitions. As some projects will take a few weeks to complete, students will build on their portfolio of work and take this home at the end of the term. All materials are supplied.

Just a quick reminder for all our artistic visitors that due to OHS regulations we don’t allow the use of oil paint in any form including the water-soluble variety
