Event description
Kickstart your Saturday with a short burst of creativity! Learn to weave a small woollen bowl and learn lots about weaving along the way.

About this Event

Using a set of 5 wooden weaving sticks and some multi-stranded 'upcycled’ wool yarn, you will weave a cute and useful little bowl for your home - and learn lots about weaving along the way. I'll bring along lots of samples to show you and different coloured yarns to work with so there should be something to suit everyone. We'll also talk about how to embellish the bowl with beads, buttons or stitch, how to make bigger and different shaped bowls and how to weave with different materials in case you’d like to make more in future (warning - this can be addictive!).

This is always a fun and relaxing workshop. Do feel free to bring your morning cuppa with you if you like, or pick on up at the Museum cafe on your way in, and start your day with some new creative ideas.

I teach weaving using simple, inexpensive tools so it’s easy to learn and accessible to everyone. No previous experience necessary - I supply all the materials and the techniques, you just bring your creativity and a willingness to experiment and play.

You will need a tapestry/wool needle to finish the bowl at home but I will have some for sale if you need one.

This workshop is led by Caroline Walker of Big Sky Textiles. Find out more about her at www.bigskytextiles.co.uk and see examples of work from previous workshops on her social media, where she can be found @bigskytextiles
