Weaving as Painting

October 22, 2022



In this workshop you will learn how to make large tapestry weavings using ordinary cardboard. Participants will make looms using cardboard with slits and use a wide range of ordinary and unusual materials such as wool yarn, raffia iridescent yarns, fabric scraps and assorted ribbons and fabric trims. Techniques will begin with setting up the warp of the cardboard loom, doing basic weaving with a tapestry needle, rya knotting to create fringe and texture, and the overhand knot to finish the piece off of the loom. These various materials will be used to create a “painting” with fibre. Most materials are included but participants are welcome to bring items from their own personal stash.
