Tapestry Weaving – 12 March 2016

Lively chatter was soon replaced by the poking out of tongues to aid concentration as we warped up our looms ready to begin our Introduction to Tapestry Weaving workshop.

 We quickly realised that tapestry weaving is not for those who want instant gratification, but it is very therapeutic.  A wall hanging may take some time – but I can feel a phone cover coming on !
