I have never heard of tapestry crochet but I checked out that website mentioned above and there are quite a few videos there about it. It looks like it's just regular single crochet using a charted design, much like knitting a design into a piece. You carry the unused yarn across, stitching over it, until you need it again, then you pick it up and drop the other yarn.

I especially liked the video where she showed how to work only from the front of the design so the design had a definite front and back. I'm not sure I could crochet from left to right using my left hand though! I am so NOT ambidextrous!

Anyway, if anyone out there makes anything using this technique, please post a picture here so we can see it. I'd love to learn more about it.

Found this video uIX7gGW79Bw
"Carol Ventura shows how to tapestry crochet"

Carol show, at 7 minutes into the video, how to turn and work across with right hand but putting hook through from back to front.

So you can do tapestry crochet without being ambidextrous. :figureditout:

:?? Not much on the details of hook work (no close ups nor slow, step by step stitching).

I took a Tapestry Crochet class from Carol Ventura at one of the Chain Link Conferences, and made a couple of little bags (coin purse, cosmetics bag). It isn't a hard technique to learn. You just carry the unused yarn color around while you work, instead of dropping it and rejoining the thread when you change to a new colored stitch.
If you do a search for 'tapestry crochet', there are videos to help you. Carol also has a book or two out with patterns.
