Learn to weave a modern wall hanging

About this Event

This class is taught on a table/lap loom and is for complete beginners and intermediates alike that would like to learn a few more techniques and join a weaving community.

Weaving is a very addictive craft. The rhythm one gets into when weaving is a great way to unwind and process the day and thoughts. Not only does a woven wall hanging look beautiful and adds texture and warmth to a room, it is also such a beautiful, meditative craft.

In this workshop Amy will be teaching you how to make your own woven wall hanging.

You will learn how to set up your loom, make knots to start and end your weaving and use your tools. You will play with texture and colour through different techniques including Rya knots (Tassels), twining, soumak, and how to add a 3D sculptural element to your weaving.

You will go away from the class confident to set up and weave on your own and with your own hand-woven wall hanging in hand ready to put up in your home or give away as a generous handmade gift! There will be a chance to buy the loom you are working on at the end of the class.

Amy will provide everything that you will need to have a ready to hang Wall Hanging. If you do have a favourite yarn or scissors then please bring them along!

Amy has been weaving for 6 years now and is interested in large scale interior pieces. She weaves on various tapestry and lap looms and also floor and table cloth looms and is happy to talk about any of your queries about weaving and life!

She is very interested in wellbeing and how craft affects emotional health positively, slowing down in a fast world.
