Have fun with a variety of wool, fibres, threads, string and fabric. You will use a simple loom or frame to weave a textured piece during the workshop, you may use this in your home or perhaps it could be the start of something larger. We will cover the basics of weaving, warp and weft – and creating simple patterns too.
I will also show you how to add texture to your weaving with Rya knots, Soumak and loops. With a range of textures and colours in the yarn box I am sure you will find what you need to make a wall hanging to suit your home decor.
This one is particularly good if you are looking for something mindful; using both hands helps to reduce stress by engaging your brain in a simple repetitive task. Weaving is an ideal way to get a break from our busy lives.
Also suitable for children over 8 years, maybe a useful antidote to the stress of school and exam pressures.
