Loom Weaving with Dash & Miller
Wed 3 May 2017, 15:00 – 17:00 BST
This workshop offers a basic first lesson in the principles of hand-weaving and mastering simple structures such as plain weave or twill and a fancy structure such as a twill or honeycomb. Each guest will weave 4 different fabric swatches on a table loom, with expert guidance and instruction.
Looms will be set-up prior to the workshop for guests to get started as soon as they arrive. Visual aids, inspiration, materials and technical notes will be provided for each session.
Dash & Miller were founded in 2009 when they decided to combine their in-depth knowledge of hand-weaving and industrial experience in a unique approach to textile design, specialising in the conception, development, and production of woven fabrics for the global fashion and interior industries. They have worked with high-end design houses including Mulberry and Jonathan Saunders.
