Hexagon Loom Weaving- Tapestry

Tapestry weaving on small looms is a delight.

I’ve made a small video tutorial to show how to weave tapestries on the hexagon loom.

This piece was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK, but it can also be woven on 2 inch or 6 inch looms.

Tapestry weaving on hexagon looms will work well for people who make their own hexagon tiles for their games.

This one is part of a larger piece that I will be videoing when it’s done.

Happy weaving!  Happy hexagons!

Hexagon Loom Weaving- Mandala- Tapestry in a circle

I love weaving tapestries on small looms, and the hexagon loom is no exception.

Because of the nature of the hexagon loom, it’s perfect for weaving in a circle, working round and round.

I’ve been weaving tapestry (the warp strands are all covered, only the weft strands show) on the hexagon loom, in a circle.

I call this, ‘Mandala technique’, as you can weave beautiful mandalas this way.

Mandalas are meant to be meditative, and this technique is very contemplative, as well as being a lot of fun.

I’ve made a video tutorial, showing how to weave the mandala technique.

Gamers who make their own hexagon tiles will be able to use this technique to make one of a kind, absolutely gorgeous tiles for their games.

The hexagon in the video was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK

Mandala technique works on all sizes of the hexagon looms.

The metallic threads are from Kreinik Threads LINK

Happy weaving!
