Saturday 9.30am - 6.30pm
Sunday 9.30am - 4.00pm
We are going to use the famous Highdown Chalk Gardens for our inspiration for this course: www.highdowngardens.co.uk
. It is a beautiful garden. The flowers will be the starting point for designing. Some students may like to focus on flowers where others may like to use the landscape as a colour composition. Your ideas and designs will become a basis for a tapestry or series of tapestries. Everyone will work at their own level and pace using their own ideas.
Some materials are provided. Your tapestry can be shaped, square, rectangular. Some of the techniques that that will be included will be hatching, blending, sumac, wrapping, eccentric weave, slits. Interlocking, dovetailing plus any 3D techniques.
This course is open to weavers at all levels.
£175 – this will include all tuition, welcome supper on the Friday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday
