Monday Makes: Create a Woven Wall Hanging


5 July 2021

For July's Monday Make we’ve been inspired by Emma Talbot's exhibition, Ghost Calls, to create our own woven wall hanging.

Through drawing, painting, animation and three-dimensional making, artist Emma Talbot tells stories based on her own experience, memories, thoughts and feelings. For her exhibition in DCA, she painted patterns, figures and text directly onto fabric panels and used these to create large fabric hangings. 

Follow our video tutorial to weave your own colourful, patterned wall hanging:

You can also download our step-by-step guide to help with your make. Like Emma, you can take inspiration from nature and even use grass and plants to weave with! 

Once you're done, snap a photo and share it with us online with us using #DCAmakes or email a photo to

If you enjoy this activity and you're able to, we'd be so grateful if you'd consider donating to help us keep enriching people's lives through art, culture and creativity. Thank you!
