Curious about weaving but don’t want the expenditure of buying a loom? Then dip your toe in the water by exploring weaving without a conventional loom, but instead using found objects such as driftwood. Focusing on colour, proportion and texture, you’ll have the opportunity to use innovative and unusual yarns, including papers, metallics, and light reflective threads. There will also be inviting wool rovings, thick cotton slubs and space-dyed ‘fancy’ yarns from around the world. You will learn basic needle weaving techniques, including tabby, soumac, and tapestry. You will have at least one if not many more exquisite and original woven artworks to take home with you.
