Masterclass: Tapestry Weaving
16 - 17 Feb 2019, 10.30am - 4pm
Learn the art of weaving with artist and designer Hannah Waldron.
The course begins with a guide in constructing a miniature loom from laser cut plywood components, which you will then use to create a bespoke woven artwork during the workshop to take home with you.
Over the weekend you will experiment with different weaving techniques and create different fabric samples before completing your own tapestry design.

Her previous clients and collaborators include the V&A museum, The New York Times, Paul Smith, Wallpaper*, IKEA, Pizza Express, Wired, Edinburgh Art festival, M&C Saatchi, London Design Guide and Shelter among others.
