Exploring looms, colour & fibre (and weave a fabric sampler)
One day weaving workshop
Weaving is a fun, creative and rewarding activity. For this session, there will be a selection of table and floor looms for you to use. These will be ‘dressed’, with the vertical warp threads all set up and ready to start weaving.
Following a hands-on demonstration, you can start to weave your very own fabric sampler. During the workshop you will explore different fabric structures and weaving techniques. There will be a wide variety of colours and materials to choose from (including luxury New Zealand & hand dyed yarns). Students will take home 1 or 2 small pieces of fabric approx 20cm wide by 20-40 cm long.
All materials are included in the course fees but you are most welcome to bring in any special yarns you wish to incorporate into your pieces.
Complementary tea, coffee & biscuits are available at the workshop. Please bring a packed lunch and water bottle. Alternatively, there are two cafés and some artisan food shops close by for you to purchase food and drinks.
No previous experience necessary, just a willingness and openness to play.
