The weaver and tapestry maker Roberta Denni guides you in this weaving journey: starting from the basics with the assembly
of the warp and going through all the steps of the creation of the fabric, you will discover not only the infinite possibilities of the canvas
but also the bobbin and perforated fabrics launched that could be sources of inspiration for your original research of
new textile solutions. Wrapping the product fabric into a wraparound scarf, a set of placemats or a
runner will be the final phase of the course… or maybe a new beginning!
