Tapestry weaving with Valerie Kirk
A workshop with Canberra Spinners and Weavers, May-June 2019
In this workshop you will learn about grey-greens, blue-greens, yellow-greens through mixing colours on the bobbin for weaving and looking at where they sit on the colour wheel.

Inspired by a leaf, develop your own design of overlapping shapes/landscape. Weave with green colour and tonal variations.
