BTG will be demonstrating tapestry weaving at Craft Central.
Come along to watch or try your hand at Woven Tapestry with members of the British Tapestry Group. Tapestry weaving, one of the oldest art forms practised around the world, is the ultimate in ‘slow cloth’. It captivates you through the use of your hands and eyes, and allows for an escape from anxiety and responsibility, bringing a peace of mind through absorption in the rhythm of weaving; under and over, over and under.
You could choose from a selection of materials and colours and shown techniques that allow for the simplest of imagery or the excitement of texture and colour effects – whatever appeals to you ‘in the moment’. Experienced weavers will be on hand to answer questions and show you how its done.
