About this Event

This is a one day weaving workshop for absolute beginners.

We will be working on a small frame loom to create a wall hanging.

You will learn the language of weaving, foundation skills , explore basic weaving techniques and stitches which once applied will give rise to you exploring your own creative ideas.

We will learn about:

  • warping the loom
  • warp spacing
  • yarn weight
  • weft techniques
  • keeping the edges straight (selvage)
  • how to stop your work unravelling
  • changing thread mid weave,
  • ideas for hanging or displaying your work.

The workshop will also explore decorative stitches, fringes, embellishments, design, colour and texture, we will experiment with various yarns, fibres and other materials.

All tools, including the loom and other materials will be supplied.

I have a large range of materials for you to use but if you have any fibre, wool, rope, ribbon or other material such as drift wood, buttons, bows, shells or other treasures you would like to incorporate into your weaving you are most welcome to bring it along.

I will also have a variety of other looms available for you to try out and a number of sample projects for you to look at to help with ideas.

Tea and coffee, morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Please bring your lunch.

This is a zero waste workshop.
