This evening workshop will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful nature inspired woven wall hanging on a frame loom. You will gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as rya, looping and pattern making, and you will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage and natural yarns to create texture and colour.
I will guide you in using elements and scenes from the natural world to inspire your wall hanging. By the end of the class you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.
The class will be limited to a small number to ensure plenty of time to get to know each other and to allow lots of one to one teaching.
The class is designed for both beginner weavers and also those wishing to develop their weaving style and meet other weaving enthusiasts.
This course will take place at my home in Tockington, near Thornbury BS32 4NN
