Want to weave your very own tapestry?

This tapestry weaving experience day at Dovecot Studios, the only operating tapestry studio in Scotland, is a rare chance to learn the art of tapestry weaving.

Aimed at absolute beginners, the workshop will introduce traditional materials of a cotton warp and wool weft, as well as the basic skills involved in creating a woven tapestry. Experimenting with a range of techniques, you will receive expert tuition from professional weaver Fiona Hutchison, have a guided tour of the Dovecot Tapestry Studio, and at the end of the day you are invited to sit back and admire your tapestry with a glass of fizz.

All materials are included.
