Tapestry Weaving

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.
