Christabel Balfour is an artist and tapestry weaver. She weaves large-scale rugs and wall-hangings on her two large floor looms which she restored and reassembled herself. Her work employs soft pastel colours and simple geometric shapes to create a sense of openness and tranquility.

She hosts workshops in her home studio in Peckham, where she teaches the same techniques that she uses in her own work. Each workshop is an opportunity to connect with the meditative nature of tapestry weaving, to slow down and enjoy working with your hands.

This was one of the best experiences ive ever had! Christabels passion for tapestry weaving is infectious and so apparent in her work and teaching. Not only do you get the benefits of her experience and wonderful teaching, she has also taken the time and care to prepare a beautiful loom, all the necessary and even additional materials and self made instruction pack to take home. I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in tapestry weaving, craftsmanship or just someone who fancies an utterly different pace and outlook upon life/vocation that the usual noise and clutter of city living. It would also serve as a great present for a friend or loved one! Christabel is an extremely talented artist but also, a kind and patient teacher. Check out her website and Instagram if you have any doubts, they’ll quickly be removed! Thank you for a wonderful class!
