Event description

In this workshop you will learn the basics of how to make your own woven fabric. The loom will be prepared in advance so that you can begin weaving immediately. We’ll cover the basic weave structures – plain weave and twill – and you’ll learn how to combine them to create pattern. We’ll experiment with yarns and yarn combinations to create different effects. We’ll also consider colour and how to use it. By the end of the day, you’ll have created your own piece of woven fabric to take home. You’ll have a good understanding of how woven fabric is made, and a handout covering the day’s learning will be provided.
