Digits & Threads Article: An Intro to Tapestry Weaving

Janna Vallee

Tapestry weaving is the slow, methodical and intimate art of weaving pictures. The weaver’s woven pictures can be representational or abstract, with varying degrees of detail depending on their setup.

My foray into tapestry weaving began in 2008 when I first entered Capilano University’s Textile Art diploma program (sadly, no longer offered). It was the first kind of weaving that was introduced to students, most likely because it is the perfect hands-on way to conceptualize the idea of, and the relationship between, warp and weft.

I'm very excited to share that my series of tapestry weaving articles has begun to roll out online at Digits & Threads, beginning with An Intro to Tapestry Weaving: Vocabulary and Best Practices

Digits & Threads is an independent, member-supported online magazine about Canadian fibre and textile arts, crafts and industry, published by Nine Ten Publications, and I'm very proud and excited to be a contributor there.
