WORKSHOP: TAPESTRY WEAVING – CREAZIONI CON L'ARAZZO
TUESDAY, October 8th from 10:00 to 18:00 at LOTTOZERO, Via Arno 10, Prato.
Tapestry Weaving is an ancient textile craft that consists of the weaving of vertical and horizontal threads to compose real textile paintings. The weft and warp is worked in small strokes creating areas of color and composing drawings, figures and geometric motifs in cloth structure.
The first evidences of Tapestry weaving date back to 11th century Germany, later the technique developed mainly in France and in Flanders. From the end of the 1800s there was a revival of the tapestry thanks to the work of the artists of the Arts and Crafts movement by William Morris and the Bauhaus and today it is widely used by many contemporary artists.
