Introduction To Tapestry Weaving Class


Tapestry weaving is another textile art that we love at Maplerose and Sheleigh Peers is so excited to introduce you to this wonderful wooly artform.

What is tapestry weaving? A tapestry is created by weaving coloured weft (across) threads through plain warp (up and down) threads. The warp threads are stretched on a loom (which we provide, but also have for sale if you fall inlove) and act as a grid for weavers to create a pattern with the coloured weft threads.

The key feature of tapestry weaving is that you're working on a small loom and most of the weft threads do not run all the way across the warp creating a unique design.

Instructor Bio:

Sheleigh Peers taught herself to spin on a spindle when she was 12 years old and, except for the occasional tea break, hasn’t stopped since. Over the years she branched out into many different styles of fibre art including knitting, crochet, felting, and weaving. She continues to spin on her many historical wheels, as well as drop and supported spindles. When she isn’t fiddling with fuzz, she is working in her soil regenerative market garden with her husband and son in beautiful Balfour, BC.
