Saturday 4 – Sunday 5 August / 11.15am–4:15pm
Take colour inspiration from Orla Kiely A Life in Pattern exhibition and learn a traditional skill on this two day tapestry weaving workshop. Led by master weaver Caron Penney this vibrant and lively tapestry weaving workshop will develop an enquiry into colour and shaping techniques. Participants will investigate the weaving techniques of blending, diagonals or circles through the strong evocative colours which Orla Kiely is so well known for. Her colour palette sits in the tertiary range and hovers between one colour and the next. The group will work on pre-warped frames provided by the tutor. By the end of the workshop participants will take home a completed tapestry. Aimed at adults, this workshop is suitable for beginners to intermediate levels.
You will learn:
- Colour relationships
- How to use the blending technique
- How to create a shape
Beginner – Intermediate Level class
This class is suitable for people with no weaving experience or for those who have some basic weaving skills.
Price: £180 includes equipment* and exhibition entry.
* The fee includes the tapestry yarn and equipment used during the workshop. Should participants wish to acquire a tapestry frame to continue their work at home these will be available for sale on the final day.
