COWL SCARF WEAVING WORKSHOP
Join me in the newly refurbished Arra Textiles Studio for a 5.5 hour weaving workshop to create your bespoke cowl scarf. In small groups (maximum of four) you'll learn a little theory on weaving techniques and structures, design a weft based colour pattern, then work on a pre-setup 4 shaft table loom to bring your bespoke cowl scarf design to life! Towards the end of the workshop you will have a chance to sew up your handwoven fabric into a cowl or wall hanging if you'd prefer and take it home 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/orange/gold for March workshops and neutral shades of grey for July - December workshops. There will be plenty of co-odinating and colourful 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 cowl or wall hanging home along with weaving notes from the day and care instructions in case you'd like to continue weaving in the future. 10.30am - 4pm (5.5 hours) You are more than welcome to bring some lunch along! There will be tea, coffee and biscuits provided for breaks throughout the workshop. All materials and equipment will be provided. Please choose "Store Pickup" at checkout and add your postal address, there's nothing for you to pickup but this way you will avoid paying a postage fee!
