Tapestry Weaving Kit, Baldishol Bird, L2-Stretch

$125.00

Looking for a skill builder after completing Laura’s “Introduction to Tapestry Weaving, Level 2” course that offers more of a stretch and a great bridge before Level 3? This project is excellent for students who have completed Level 2, while still being a very enjoyable project for more advanced students as well. Select Erindale Tapestry Studio weaving tutorials from Levels 1 and 2 will be important resources for this project to review techniques. If you have not participated in Laura Berlage’s tapestry course, please reach out to see if this is a good project kit for you.

This kit is inspired by 12th Century Baldishol Tapestry from Noway and offers great practice for weaving pointed dovetail pictorial technique (billedvev), working from a cartoon, and learning new skills like eccentric weft. And you’ll be able to enjoy your project in style with a beautifully hand-crafted hanger!  This project is designed to be made on an 18×18 inch frame loom (the same as in the classes). The kit comes with a PDF digital download essay of process photographs and descriptions that walk you through starting, weaving, and finishing your piece. This will be sent to the email that you use in the checkout as part of your receipt.

The physical part of the kit includes the colorful weft wool (from our sheep!), bleached linnen weft accent, decorative hanger, cartoon for the pattern, and ribbons for binding and mounting. If this part of the kit needs to be shipped to you, shipping options are available in the checkout process. This kit does not include the warp (2 ply wool warp is recommended), loom, or hand tools (available separately). You will also want a needle and thread and either fabric clips or clothes pins to complete the finishing of the tapestry and attach it to the hanger.

Finished dimensions for the tapestry are 9 x 11 inches. The kit makes one tapestry.

Happy weaving!
