Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need to know anything before I can take this course?
A: Yes, and no. You do need to know how to set up your loom. This course will not teach you that, but you do not need to know how to weave! Weft-Faced goes over how to start weaving from the very beginning and will take you through finishing a project.
Q: What kind of loom do I need?
A: You can weave tapestry on any loom that can hold a nice tight tension (think guitar strings). You can use almost any floor loom or a frame loom for this. Nicole will be using a simple frame loom for the course, but you don't have to. The tapestry techniques are the same regardless of what loom you have! You can even use an embroidery hoop or canvas and combine your tapestry with embroidery weaving. (more on that below.) Please keep in mind that rigid heddle looms are not recommended* because their tension just isn't tight enough.
*If it's all you have - go for it. It's better to get started with what you have instead of waiting for the "perfect" loom.
Q: Can I combine tapestry and embroidery weaving?
A: Yes! It might seem counterintuitive since tapestry requires a high tension warp for your best experience, but since embroidery weavings tend to be on the smaller side, the tension isn't a big factor (the warps are shorter so they move a lot less!) Tapestry embroidery weaving is even better when you move onto a canvas! Check out my Embroidery Weaving kits in my shop here!
Q. What about my other materials?
A. I have a page with links for you! These are materials that I am using/recommending for the course. You do not have to use these exact materials but this is a great place to start.
Q: Can I share this course?
A: No. When you purchase this course you are promising that you will be the sole viewer and will not distribute the pdf's or any other course contents. BUT, I would love it if you told your friends and family about it so they can purchase the course for themselves!
Q: Will I receive emails from Warped Fibers after purchase?
A: Yes, when you purchase this course or any e-book from Warped Fibers you will automatically be added to our email list. But, don't worry! You can unsubscribe at anytime. If you stay on the list, though, then you will have access to updates, weaving tips, a community page with freebies, and more!
Q: Do you have any discounts?
A: Actually, yes! If you join the community (it's free!) by joining my mailing list before purchasing, then you can get 10% off this course! You get added automatically when you purchase the course anyway - so why not?
