The process of weaving a tapestry portrait

This is clever stuff.

Tapestry artist Kathy Spoering demonstrates weaving from a cartoon. She traces a photo of herself, transfers that “cartoon” onto the warp of her loom, and then weaves a self portrait. Doesn’t that sound simple? And how many of us could manage to get as far as getting a decent tracing of the photo?

The comparison between the finished tapestry and the original photo is stunning.

See the whole process here. She has certainly got my vote in the 2018 self portrait competition.
