I've just recently gotten into weaving and constructed my own loom and made my first creation yesterday, a tiny rug Grin

Now that I've gotten the very basics down, I feel I want to begin making tapestries and I've searched the web for a long time without much results.

What I need to learn is: How to make patterns. I have a basic idea on how to design patterns using gridded paper.

Adding new threads - I.E securing a thread and adding a new one.

Any tips that can help me begin my journey would be great Smiley

Have you been to the public library?

There are a great number of books that show clearly the kind of skills you are asking about, with photos which I need to visualize the skill.

Have a good day!

What exactly are you trying to do? Create images?
1. Set up your warp
2. Make a shed and put your shuttle through just the part you want
3. beat it with a fork instead of the beater bar (this will just make everything flat across!)
4. repeat

hope this helps
