‘Threads’ 2-day Weaving Master-class Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November 10.30am – 4.30pm £120 light lunch included. Please call to book a place

A workshop aimed at intermediate/experienced weavers that is designed to encourage participants to break the rules of weaving and push themselves outside of their comfort zones.

Over the course of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to weave as many samples as possible, many of which could then be further processed exploring finishing techniques such as devoré, foiling, melting, pleating, burning etc. Weavers will be encouraged to explore ideas and principles unencumbered by the restraint of functionality. The final evaluation will include discussion of how certain ideas could be developed further.

NB: participants will need to bring a prepared loom – please email for warp instructions.
