Weave your own decorative tapestry in a ready made rustic weaving frame using a selection of handspun weaving yarns. Add in pieces of fabric or treasured objects to make your weaving unique. Once complete, the frame is ready to hang on the wall and enjoy!
I learnt this style of tapestry weaving in Chile, where it is very popular. Using a few simple weaving techniques and a variety of richly-textured yarns it is possible to create highly individualistic combinations of colour and texture. The kit contains an easy-to-follow instruction leaflet which will guide you through the weaving process. No previous weaving experience is required.
For my 'day job' I run a small fair trade business supporting spinners and weavers in Chile. The handspun yarns that I use in my tapestry kits have been produced especially for me. I am also a weaving teacher, and run courses in traditional 'Mapuche' weaving and decorative tapestry weaving. If you would like to learn more, you can visit my website: www.ananuca.co.uk
The weaving frames have been made by my husband at home in Wales. He uses recycled timber where possible, stained with homemade wood stains. The frame is finished with a light wax coating.
Each kit includes:

Packaging: little by little I am trying to do my bit for the environment by using recycled packaging where possible. I re-use cardboard packaging and bubble wrap for frames. I am using up my supply of polybags before switching to a compostable alternative. If for any reason you require 'new' packaging (for example, for a gift), please let me know when you make your order.
