‘Warp / Weft’ - 2022, hand woven tapestry
All fabric have these two things in common: warp, which are the vertical threads held under tension on the loom, and weft, which are the horizontal threads.
In tapestry, the warp is not seen, as the weft threads are packed down very tightly - so in this tapestry, all you are seeing is the weft, although the warp is the ‘backbone’ of the whole piece.
With my handwoven scarves, you can see both the warp and the weft, as both create the pattern.
So even though tapestry and handweaving have a lot in common, they are two very different skillsets and mediums ;)
