The Take-Your-Loom-Out-Of-The-Box Tapestry Bracelet
Ready to take the leap and learn the basics of weaving tapestry?
This project is from Mirrix's 24th Weave-Along.The weave-along has now ended, but we will email you the instructions after you purchase the kit!
This project is dedicated to those of you who are interested in weaving tapestry but a tad intimidated to jump right in. You will learn to make a beautiful silk tapestry bracelet. We will hold your hand through set-up and warping, basic tapestry techniques (slit tapestry, pick and pick and wavy lines) and finishing. After making this bracelet you'll be more confident with your loom and able to set off on your weaving journey with a sturdy foundation of tapestry knowledge. This project takes only a few hours to complete, so dive right in, we promise you that this will not be the last time you weave tapestry!
