Item details

Learn to weave a wall hanging or tapestry picture on a shop-bought loom or using an old picture frame or scrap wood.

This 18 page e-booklet gives step-by-step instructions on how to make a loom, warp it and then weave a tapestry picture or wall hanging and uses lots of colour photographs to illustrate the process.

I have been teaching weaving workshops using simple recycled tapestry looms for several years and I love seeing how much joy students get from using these simple tools to create something that is uniquely their own. Not everyone can get to a workshop though so I also make kits to teach the same techniques - available here in my etsy shop - and I have now also written these NEW e-booklets, perfect for anyone who already has a loom and yarns.

The e-booklet is available in digital format as a PDF file so you can download it and start weaving straight away! Please note that you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the file. This is available for free at: https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/

In the e-booklet I will show you how to use an old picture frame to make a loom and then use it to weave your own unique freestyle weaving using a variety of different tapestry techniques. Along the way I share lots of hints and tips in the same way that I do with my workshop students. I also give you ideas on how to finish the weaving and how to make it ready for hanging or framing.

If you have any questions about the e-booklets, please don't hesitate to message me and I'll be glad to try to help.
