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 craft kit contains an easy-to-follow instruction leaflet which will guide you through the weaving process. This is a beginner's weaving kit: no previous weaving experience is required.
NB. Weaving shown is for illustrative purposes. Weaving instructions encourage free interpretation of techniques and colour combinations.
The weaving frames have been made by hubby David at home in Wales. Wheenver possible he uses recycled timber, finished with a light wax coating.
