Join Useful/Beautiful artist Maria Sigma for an in depth workshop which will teach you all the basics of weaving and how to turn your discarded T-shirts and pillowcases into textile masterpieces.
The workshop will provide you with a thorough and intensive grounding in hand-weaving. You will learn foundation weaving skills, such as warping, loom set up, colour blending and structure, and basic weaving techniques and patterns. Not only will you cover a wide range of styles but also learn how to develop your 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.
Refreshments and a sandwich lunch are included with this workshop.
Please remember to bring your own recycled textiles with you to use throughout the workshop.
Maximum capacity 15 people
