Welcome to Techniques in Tapestry with Janna Maria Vallee!
In this course, we expand on the techniques we learned in our Tapestry Weaving course. We will go over the following skills:
- weaving clean horizontal lines
- weaving vertical pillars
- using pick and pick
- how to use weft interlock to avoid sewing up slits
- how to blend colours between shapes
- blocking tapestry
So grab your loom and butterflies and let’s start weaving some gorgeous wall hangings!

Weft Yarn used in this workshop:
Ashford and Leclerc both have good tapestry beaters. A common household fork will work fine to begin with, too. Just be sure to use the same beater throughout an entire piece for consistency.
