Meditative Loom Weaving
Wednesday 13th July 1-3pm
The ancient craft of weaving has long been recognised for it's humble practical beauty and meditative qualities while creating gorgeous decorative projects for your home. You can also reflect and relax through the repeating motions of yarn winding over the loom.
You will learn how to warp up a simple wooden loom and the techniques used to add different textures and interest in your wall hanging including Tabby weave, Rya knots and loops, Soumak braid, egyption knots to name a few. You will be shown how to finish your weave, tie everything off on the reverse of your wall hanging and how to attach your dowel ready for hanging.
You will get to use lots of different fibres and wools, also including soft string, Merino and Alpaca wool and strips of fabric.
The cost of this workshop includes the cost of all materials.
