A brand new video will be shown on a loop at Fabric of the North.
What is Tapestry? is for visitors who have little or no idea of what a woven tapestry is, and who may confuse it with embroidery or needlepoint, such as the Bayeux and Ehrman 'tapestries'. Our video, by Graeme Bowman, will give a lightning overview of the basics of warp and weft - such a simple activity in principle (if not always in practice!) that we hope visitors will want to give it a go after watching, on our do-it-yourself 'Wacky Wall'.
Filming started a few days ago at Darlington Weaving Rooms. More news as it comes in - and maybe we'll show a bit of the video on this site.
