Kennita finds tapestry weaving a most creative textile process. This short introduction will get you started with solid technique and a minimum number of tools.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.
Kennita will help you on your way to discovering the magical world of tapestry weaving where the possibilities are endless. We will build our own looms with artist stretcher bars, warp that loom, and learn a few simple techniques.
