Event Details

Learning to weave is an adventure in exploring colour, texture and pattern and Loughborough artist Jan Bowman will lead you thorough it! Working on 4 shaft table looms, set up in advance with a variety of warps made of different yarns, Jan will teach you the basics of weaving and you will learn a number of weave structures which produce different patterns in the fabrics.

As you develop your woven art work the range of materials will be extended to include beads, buttons, ribbons, braids, fabric, and paper, found things such as grasses, feathers, reed and willow alongside a wide variety of yarns. Imagery can be used to stimulate ideas for colour and content for the art piece and Jan will encourage you to bring your own photographs to use for inspiration.

No previous experience required and you will take home a framed or mounted art piece ready for hanging.

Adults and accompanied 12+
