Learn Tapestry weaving!

October 1 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Learn to weave tapestry with Maddi McKay, a West Philly based weaver. See their work on Instagram @lunamothwoven Link HERE.

During this 3-hour workshop, participants will learn the basics of tapestry weaving including: starting and finishing a project, different weaving techniques, how to trouble shoot common errors, and more!

As part of the course, participants need a tapestry loom. We recommend you order the 10″ of  THIS ONE  or THIS ONE or feel free to bring your own.

You will also need yarn for your tapestry. We suggest you visit our supporters, Wild Hand in Mt. Airy or Weaverhouse in South Philly. Both have online options and Kelbourne Woolens is online only. Please purchase yarn you love and in as many shapes and sizes as you like. Experimentation is strongly suggested!

Here are some handy links for yarn and loom ideas from our supporters:

From Wild hand:
this fiber bundle would provide students with a wide variation of textures/weights which is great; it’s $55
this loom from Wild Hand seems great –  $45
Weaver house co:
hello looms (the larger size), and you have the choice whether you’d like to purchase this with a fiber pack. large size and fiber pack cost $30 – a great bargain option.
the schacht lilli loom is also a great option if people want to spend some more money ($74)

October 1, 10-1 pm at the Guild House in Manayunk!
