This summer I’ve spent several hours learning new weaving skills: Choosing a picture/painting to develop a tapestry, trying a more realistic style, using different textures to interpret things closer or far, something small or big, something smooth or rough. And this is the result, Is about 65 x 65 cms and (like textiles in general) is hard to photograph because it sucks the light.
The next photographs is the painting I used as reference, and myself with the tapestry mid done. I’ve learned to weave for the back of the tapestry, with a mirrow in front.
This is my first collection of tapestries inspired in their own texture. A total of 6 handmade textiles woven in a weaving loom. Wool, cotton and vegetable tanned leather yarn.

Last week I made a small loom for tapestry weaving with a frame and some nails. Sounds easy, and it is ! Although nails aren’t straight, the loom works well.
I have done only two and I’m not extremely happy with the results but I have remembered forgotten techniques I learnt few years ago, I’ve had fun and I’m sure I will weave few more. I just need to plan better the design before weaving.
