Skill level: BEGINNER
I learnt this style of tapestry weaving in Chile, where it is very popular. Using a few simple weaving techniques and a variety of richly-textured yarns it is possible to create highly individualistic combinations of colour and texture. The kit contains an easy-to-follow instruction leaflet which will guide you through the weaving process. No previous weaving experience is required.
NB. Weaving shown is for illustrative purposes. Weaving instructions encourage free interpretation of techniques and color combinations.
The weaving frames have been made by my husband at home in Wales. He uses recycled timber where possible, finished with a light wax coating.
