Weaving workshops in the Arra Textiles studio are back for summer 2021!
Join me in the studio for either a half day, full day or weekend of weaving on multi-shaft looms. New for 2021 is a series of three workshops where we take a deeper dive into each stage of the design process:
Creating A Woven Collection, a single day small group workshop focusing on colour, materials and building a collection.
Woven Structures, a one on one single day workshop focusing on the structures and set up of an 8-shaft loom.
Learn To Weave Weekend, a three day workshop for two people at a time where we'll cover every stage of designing a bespoke fabric, setting up a shaft loom and weaving a sample.
Each can be taken as a stand alone workshop or in order and are a great follow up to the half and full day workshops already available. Over the course of each workshop you'll build up a colourful and informative reference book with tips, samples and lots of design information for any future weaving projects.
At the moment dates are very flexible and will be arranged after your place is booked. Private group bookings are available along with on location workshops too.
There are a number of safety measures we have to take due to local Covid-19 restrictions, which include the smaller class sizes, but if you'd like any more information on what to expect or have any concerns you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are plenty of images and a couple of videos below from past workshops so you can get an idea of how everything works and what to expect.
