We begin with a brief conversation about woven cloth, the history of weaving and the development of looms.
I will demonstrate good technique for weaving with wool and introduce more tips as you weave on a vintage 4 shaft table loom set up with a wool warp designed to give you the opportunity to play with both colour and some weave structures. The warp is named Outlook, referencing Wellington's infamous southerly weather systems and the promise of spring. All yarns are provided however you are welcome to bring your favourite wool yarns and we can see if they can be incorporated into your work.
Depending on your skill level and the motifs you chose to weave, you will take home your own piece of fabric that is suitable for you to construct into a cushion cover, table runner, diary cover, wall hanging or purse.
You can be new to weaving, or already have some experience and wish to learn more about weaving with New Zealand wool and about sustainable design.
We will take a break for refreshments, which are provided.
During COVID restrictions each workshop will be delivered to a group of 1, 2 or 3 people who know each other and book together. Once a booking has been made I will close off availability for that workshop to people outside of your group.
Other things to note
COVID-19 When you book I will reduce workshop spaces so you (or YOUR group) will work with me only. If unwell/unable to travel refer to updates in Airbnb cancellation policy
