In this workshop students learn the fundamentals of the art tapestry weaving and gain a solid understanding of the process of warping up and weaving with multiple techniques like shape building, colour blending and textural techniques. We also talk about how to choose yarn for your projects, how to finish your tapestry as well as how to troubleshoot tapestry-specific issues.
Students will leave with a good start on a project in colours of their choosing from a range of naturally dyed yarns made by Janna.

Everlea Yarn will be at Yarn Okanagan 2019! Yay! I’m so excited to be BOTH teaching weaving AND vending at Yarn Okanagan this year.
Yarn Okanagan is a fibre, yarn and education event at the center of the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. We will be bringing our entire Everlea Yarn line as well as Mirrix Looms and accessories.
Students who attend my weaving workshop will also get a discount on any Mirrix Loom. Join our mailing list to find out more.
Fibrations Victoria is a community based celebration of all things fibre brought to you by Knotty by Nature Fibre Arts in collaboration with the fibre arts community.
Everlea Yarn will be there with all our yarn bases and colourways as well as Mirrix Looms and accessories. Janna will be holding a tapestry weaving demonstration using a Mirrix Loom at a to-be-announced time.
