About this experience
Expand on and combine your basic tapestry weaving and hand embroidery skills by weaving a 12" square wall hanging and applying custom hand-embroidery designs to the woven fabric. Basic weaving skills are best and no hand embroidery skills required (this will be taught in class) but if you have taken our beginner hand embroidery you will have many skills to draw upon when designing the embroidery aspect of this amazing wall hanging project!
