Learn how to create unique tapestry pieces from the basics to completion

Combining ancestral techniques to create contemporary pieces is one of the main approaches that Portuguese textile artist Diana Cunha uses for her work. Through her brand, Oficina 166, Diana is always looking for new materials and designs to experiment with visual languages and styles for her handmade decorative pieces.

In this course, create a tapestry using a frame loom, learning the main steps and techniques for creating shapes and incorporating textures and fringes. Diana shares with you her creative process from beginning to end: the first ideas, the assembly of the loom, the execution of the piece, the final touches, and the tapestry's optimal placement in a room.
