  • How to make a piece of textile art. Woven Embroidery Hoop - Step 1
    Step 1

    Choose the yarn you want to use. I chose to use a range of natural fibres, including banana yarn, nettle and hemp. You will also need an embroidery hoop, which you can purchase at a craft/ haberdashery store or from Amazon. You can use a needle to thread the yarn, but this is optional as you can also use your hands, this would just be more fiddly.

    If you want multiple colours, you can tie yarn on in sections and add on another colour. These vertical yarns will form the 'warp' and the horizontal yarns you thread through them will form the 'weft' of the weave.
