Louise Martin – Tapestry Weaving

www.louisemartintapestry.com
  • acclaimed tapestry artist from Clackmannanshire
  • was senior weaver at Stirling Castle
  • provides tapestry frames so you can get started easily
  • be warned – once most people start, they find it hard to stop!

When the wonderful Louise comes to do her two end on end spring courses, we occasionally offer a DAY course with her before hand so that some might discover how accessible and wonderful Tapestry can be. Executed on simple frame looms, this age-old craft can be creative and therapeutic, and limited only by your own imagination.

With weaving, the choice is yours, right down to incorporating your own thread if you wish, so whatever you create can have more meaning to you, personally.
