Anuschka Barlas, 'Ancestral Passage', Mixed wool and cotton thread weft on synthetic wool warp, mounted on recycled wooden frame / loom, 40 x 50 cm, 2022

A tutored handwoven tapestry workshop exploring overlaps between drawing, painting and weaving, with a focus on making colourful, abstract landscapes from memory and imagination.

In this 4 hour workshop, students will learn the basics of tapestry weaving using a frame loom and a selection of colourful wools and yarns to weave their own mini landscape. We will learn how to warp up a loom and cover the foundational techniques in developing, finishing and cutting a handwoven tapestry.

This course welcomes beginners, or those with some experience in drawing and painting – basically anyone curious about trying their hand at weaving in a fun and friendly environment, and uncovering the medium’s creative potential!
