Festive Tapestry Weaving Experience Day

Want to learn to weave in one of the world’s leading tapestry studios?

This tapestry weaving experience day at Dovecot Studios is a rare chance to learn the art of tapestry weaving at the UK’s longest running tapestry studio.

Aimed at absolute beginners, the workshop will introduce traditional materials of a cotton warp and wool weft, as well as the basic skills involved in creating a woven tapestry. Experimenting with a range of techniques, you will receive expert tuition from professional weaver Fiona Hutchison, and at the end of the day you are invited to sit back and admire your tapestry with a glass of fizz.

Tickets £120* (+ booking fee) Price includes equipment and complimentary drink.

*The price includes tapestry yarn and use of equipment during the workshop. If participants would like to practice and develop their new weaving skills at home, tapestry frames, yarns, and bobbins are available at Dovecot Shop where attendees will receive a 10% discount on the day of their workshop.

Various safety measures are in place for this workshop including socially-distanced workstations, sanitised equipment, and adhering to Track and Trace. If you have any questions please contact us at “info@dovecotstudios.com”:info@dovecotstudios.com
