WOVEN WALL ART WORKSHOP
Join me in the newly refurbished Arra Textiles Studio for a two and a half hour weaving workshop using yarn shades in reds and golds or greys.
In small groups (maximum of four) you'll learn a little theory on weaving techniques and structures, design a weft based colour stripe pattern, then work on a pre-setup 4 shaft table loom to bring your bespoke design to life!
Towards the end of the workshop you will have a chance to either sew up your handwoven fabric into a wall hanging or take it home for another project with detailed wash and care instructions.
We'll be working with a beautiful merino wool warp, set up and ready to weave, in shades of red and gold for workshops in March or neutral shades of grey for workshops from July onwards. There will be plenty of co-odinating weft yarns to choose from but you are also more than welcome to bring along any yarn you've been saving for a special occasion for some extra weft detail.
No experience necessary, this workshop is perfect for beginners, textile enthusiasts and craft lovers wanting to learn a new skill. All materials and equipment are provided and at the end of the workshop you will be able to take your completed wall hanging home along with weaving notes from the day and care instructions in case you'd like to continue weaving in the future.
There will be tea, coffee and biscuits provided for breaks throughout the workshop and all materials and equipment will be provided.
