Here in our town we have lots of free courses. Mostly attended by women, here is one hosted by the chamber of commerce on hand knotted kilims and tapestries.
The huge looms, the yarns and wool are all given to the students so that they can make these pieces without any costs.
It is quite funny how much money is spent on some stuff here, but I do like these courses, there is also one to paint porcelain, silver jewelry and more. It is meant for woman to be able to make some money or create job opportunities. These courses are either hosted by the chamber of commerce or the ministry of education. I have been to many of these kind of courses, they are fun and free and each course gives something new. Mum and I actually first started learning jewelry making in one of these courses. But then continued further with time, practice and other courses and tutorials.
Row by row knot by knot these pieces take weeks, not my cup of tea these would drive me crazy :)
Each region has its own style, patterns and methods to create tapestries.
Would you join this course if it was in your town?
