According to textile historians, tapestry weaving has been practiced for more than two thousand years, and it is a favorite craft among both experienced and novice weavers today. Tapestry can be woven with simple looms and simple tools, yet tapestry weaving can create intricate designs, sometimes using hundreds of different colors to make realistic pictures. Tapestries have proven more durable than paintings, and many have been passed as heirlooms through families, generation after generation. Let the experts at Weaving Today guide you through the joys of this ancient form of weaving with this eBook full of instructions, free projects, and tips for using a tapestry loom.

Make a Stunning Hand Woven Tapestry

Geometry Man Tapestry by Karen Donde


The basic tapestry weaving techniques described here represent only a fraction of the many methods used by tapestry weavers. Practice with these for your own Geometry Man or try them with other geometric designs. Karen designed this tapestry while earning her Handweavers Guild of America's Certificate of Excellence when the first sample called for a tapestry of geometric shapes. She used a computer drawing program to create a variety of shapes and moved them around to stumble upon what is now "Geometry Man".

Using a Tapestry Loom

Set Your Body (and Your Loom) Free by Karen Piegorsch


Frame looms are popular among both experienced and novice tapestry weavers due to portability, low cost, and ease of warping. Commonly, the frame loom is used in the lap, balanced against the edge of a table. A painter's box easel makes a great portable tapestry stand, because the loom can be clamped to the box for transport. The briefcase-style handle makes carrying the loom easier and helps mitigate the easel's weight. This article uncovers the secrets to using good ergonomics with your tapestry weaving supplies. Increase your comfort, circulation, overall enjoyment, and quality of your artwork with these helpful tips.

Tapestry Weaving Patterns

Weave a Tapestry Bag on a Box by Sarah Swett


Weaving on a box is immensely satisfying. You can take your time and play with blocks of color without tying up a floor loom. Sarah usually recommends a small box for your first bag, but there’s no limit to the fun you can have with playing with size, shape, and designs to fit the future life of the bag. Once you've enjoyed the pleasure of plucking a sturdy loom from the trash, you'll never look at the UPS truck in quite the same way. To heck with the contents—it is the box that counts!

Tapestry Weaving Techniques

Wedge Weave in Miniature by Margaret Windeknecht


This article is an introduction to a very unique adaptation of this old weave technique. I call the technique drawn-thread tapestry because it is similar to drawn-thread embroidery and can be used with any tapestry technique. It is done with cotton or linen fabric on an embroidery hoop using cotton, silk, or wool floss wefts threaded in a tapestry needle. These miniature wedge-weave tapestries can be presented as framed artwork, dollhouse- scale handwovens, or small bits of jewelry.
