This workshop was scheduled to proceed at the Centre on Saturday, 18th and 25th November 2017.  Unfortunately, we did not receive sufficient interest to run it but could possibly run it in Spring 2018 if further interest received.  

Frances says "The art of handwoven tapestry is many thousands of years old and, in that time the technique has remained virtually unchanged. What has changed and evolved over the centuries is the way in which the medium is used, the purity of its design and execution and the esteem."


The course content includes:-

Day 1

  • Learning how to put on a warp, weave plain, pattern, shapes, diagonal and curved lines. 

Day 2

  • Develop your own design and weave a wall piece or a functional object such as a shoulder bag or purse

Time - Start at 11am, lunch break from 1pm - 1.30pm and finish at 3.30pm both days.  
Tea and coffee provided but you would need to bring your lunch with you.

The workshops would be limited to 10 people so early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.  Contact us on 071 9176721 to register your interest.
