Constructed and woven textiles

Tapestry weaving – the principles of design with Pat Taylor

Ref: S4D07612




Great design is more than learned aesthetics and style. You will explore, understand and then use design elements: harmony, balance, proportion, dominance, emphasis, variety, movement and rhythm. If you are a tapestry weaver with curiosity, and perhaps only a little knowledge about design, then this course will guide you to produce individual and personalised woven tapestry.
