Fiona Rutherford, Textile Artist

Beginners Workshop



The joy of tapestry weaving is that it doesn’t involve complicated equipment. In essence it is a simple technique with boundless creative possibilities.

This workshop is for a small group and is run from Fiona’s home based studio in Edinburgh. It is  an introductory workshop suitable for beginners or those who want to refresh their weaving technique. Over the two days you will be learning the basic techniques of how to put a warp on the frame, choosing yarns to weave, creating simple shapes, controlling tension and learning how to cut off and finish your tapestry. At the end you will have at least one small tapestry mounted to take home.

All equipment and materials are provided.

Fee: £110 for two day workshop.
