At Morley College they are dedicated to providing an ambitious programme of innovative courses for adults so that they can learn practical skills and open up life building opportunities.

One of the courses on offer is Tapestry Weaving. It is the chance for those interested in textiles, surface pattern, colour and texture to develop their skills. There are two courses available, which will both be taught by William Jefferies on Wednesdays between 10th April and 19th June.

Traditional and Experimental Tapestry Weaving
2pm-5pm, 160 adult, 130 seniors, 85 concessions

You will start with a crash course in tapestry weaving using bobbins, which will be followed by experiments using 2D and 3D techniques both on and off the weaving frame. The classes are taught in groups and on a one-to-one basis, so are appropriate for all skill levels. Beginners will learn how to hatch and spot, intermediates, will explore a variety of textural techniques using recycled materials, and advanced students will be able to take on their own personal projects.

Tapestry Projects
6.30pm-9pm, 134, 109 concessions

In this course you will learn Gobelin Tapestry, a form of tapestry that reflects the heritage of the 15th century French manufactures, Gobelins. You will receive tutor and peer feedback over the ten week period, as you practice, and question the styles and themes of yours and others' work.

Bawden Cases
At the end of your course, your work might be chosen for display at one of Morley College's exhibitions. There is currently an exhibition showing the work of previous students. The range includes flat, textured, and three dimensional forms of tapestry. They will be on view until the 12th March.
