Weave a Wall Hanging on a Frame Loom (Saturday all day workshop)
Have you ever wanted to learn how to weave? Well this workshop will teach you foundational weaving skills on a simple frame loom with the aim of creating a wall hanging. At the end of the workshop you will be able to take home the piece you have made during the class, ready to hang on your wall. You will also take home the knowledge to continue your interest in weaving in your own time.
The class will cover:
Design development - deciding what to make, choosing a colour scheme and selecting appropriate yarns.
Loom set-up - knotting and warping your wool on which to create your weave structures on a warping area of L39cm x W27 cm.
Creating your weaving using a variety of sustainably sourced yarns in an assortment of textures. You will create a wall hanging with maximum dimensions of L39cm x W27 cm.
Taking your weaving off the loom and finishing it so that your piece is ready to hang on your wall at home.
All yarns and equipment are provided and are sustainably sourced, and each student will be provided with their own individual frame loom for the workshop.
