Introduction to Tapestry Weaving

Led by master-weavers at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, Introduction to Tapestry Weaving is an intensive 2 day class where participants will learn the basic skills to produce simple tapestries on a small scale using the weft faced French Gobelin technique. You will learn how to warp a loom, weave simple shapes and lines and explore colour, pattern and texture using high quality ATW dyed yarn in our light filled studio in South Melbourne. Participants will be able to watch our master weavers working on large-scale tapestry commissions and get exclusive access to view the studio floor and dye room.

Advanced Tapestry Weaving

Our three day advanced classes are designed for participants who have completed our Introduction to Tapestry Weaving or similar or advanced weavers who wish to improve their skills or learn a new technique. Each advanced class is themed by a master weaver to address a specific set of techniques, approaches to designing for tapestry, investigations into colour or interpretation. These classes provide time exploring these specialist areas as well as time to work on your own tapestry practice while supported by a master weaver.
