March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm £100
An in depth workshop which will teach you all the basics of weaving and how to turn your household waste textiles from old T-shirts to pillowcases into textile masterpieces.
The workshop is a 4-hour class designed to give to students a thorough and intensive grounding in hand-weaving. You will learn foundational weaving skills, such as warping, loom set up, colour blending and structure, and basic weaving techniques and patterns. The aim of the class is to not only cover a wide range of styles but also encourage the student to develop his/her own distinctive voice as a weaver. You can make a small wall hanging, pieces for a patchwork, a clutch bag or an abstract artwork, and plenty more. Let your imagination run wild!
A small wooden frame loom, weaving tools and instructions booklet will be provided in a recycled-cotton pouch to take home. Materials and yarns will be also provided, but do bring your own textiles to recycle – tablecloths, bed sheets, pillowcases, and T-shirts.
Plus drinks and snacks on the house!
The next two workshops will take place on Saturday the 16th and the 30th of March 13.00 am at Craft Central at The Forge [London E143AE], the creative community for imaginative thinkers, London craftspeople and craft-lovers in a landmark, historic building.
