Weave Yourself a Wall Hanging – February 2020
Take a day out of your busy lives to weave yourself or a loved one a unique and original piece imbued with your own personality. In this workshop you can unleash your creativity and let your imagination run wild while you play with colours and textures.
This is a full day workshop for people either new to weaving or experienced. You will learn how to weave wall hangings, using a variety of yarns, fine threads, fabric strips, lace and other mediums. We will explore various design techniques and at the end of the workshop we will attach the wallhangings to a piece of dowel, or other medium of your choice.
Creativity and imagination is a personal journey – in all our workshops, there is no right or wrong and no fixed agenda. I am guided by what the participants want to learn and I guide and show you the techniques so you can create the something that is totally your own.
A variety of craft yarns are provided and included in the cost. Fine, high quality weaving yarns in wool, cotton & silk are also available @.19c per gram. Each participant will have a floor loom with the warp set up and ready for weaving. Morning tea and a light lunch included, with lots of tea and coffee too, of course.
Please note – although we will be focusing on wall hangings, you are welcome to work on any project you like
