Tapestry Weaving Extension Workshop tutored by Marilyn Rea-Menzies

Saturday 31st July-Sunday 1st August 2021

New Zealand Bush Textures - From Design to Tapestry - suitable for participants who have some previous tapestry weaving experience.

In this workshop you will design a small tapestry inspired by the textures of the New Zealand native bush, starting with a drawing similar to the one here. A photograph of the bush will be the starting point from which you will create something new.

You will be taken a step further from the plain weave structures in the previous workshops, into the textures created by some new tapestry techniques - soumak, French knots, and weft wrapping.

The workshop commences with designing, warping a tapestry frame loom, then weaving the tapestry inspired by your design. Everyone will work at the own level and pace and you will be able to complete the tapestry at home if you do not complete it in the workshop. A frame loom will be provided along with a selection of the colourful yarns that you able you to continue weaving.

All materials will be supplied, though you are welcome to supplement with your favourite personal fine yarns. A $10 small materials fee payable to the tutor on commencement of the workshop to cover materials.
