Learn all about tapestry weaving here! In these courses and articles Janna Maria Vallee, a celebrated tapestry artist from Madeira Park, British Columbia shows us the fundamentals of this art form. If you are new to tapestry, start with “Fundamentals of Tapestry” and then move to “Techniques in Tapestry“.


Janna is writing a series of posts all about helping new tapestry weavers find confidence in their work. Janna will address questions that she has seen her students ask and they might be about troubleshooting tapestry issues, offering clarity, or helping out with a creative starting point. These articles hope to offer concrete advice that is actionable on the loom and provide detailed photos and illustrations where applicable. If you have questions you’d like Janna to answer, please feel free to ask them in our Community Forums here »
