Event description
Weave a bowl - from fabric or rug yarns

About this Event

Join Caroline Walker, Big Sky Textiles, for this inspirational and relaxing 2.5 hour workshop.

We'll use simple wooden peg looms and weaving sticks to create unique textile yarn bowls using cotton or woollen fabric "yarn" or really chunky multi-stranded rug yarns.

You will learn how to warp the peg loom and weaving sticks with suitable wool or cotton yarn and then weave a chunky round bowl using my own techinque.

During the workshop, we will also talk about how to make different shape bowls, finishing techniques, using different warp and weft materials and how to embellish the bowl. You will also learn how to use the same techniques to make rugs, scarves and wall hangings and how to prepare a wide variety of materials for weaving, including sheep fleece and recycled fabrics. All materials are provided for the workshop, though you will need a tapestry needle (a sewing needle with a large eye) to finish off the bowl at home.

I teach weaving using simple, inexpensive tools so it’s easy to learn and accessible to everyone. No previous experience is necessary. Each workshop is limited to 6 people so there is plenty of time for individual attention but still enough new people to chat and share ideas with.

Please note we only accept bookings for people aged 14 and over. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Refunds and cancellations - no refunds will be given if you cancel less than 7 days before the event. If the event is fully booked, we will operate a waiting list and you'll automatically be notified if a place becomes available.
