Weave Your Own Wall Hanging Workshop
10am - Saturday, 13 July 2019 — 2pm - Tuesday, 13 August 2019
Venue: Forty Hall
This is a fun and engaging 4 hour workshop designed to teach students basic techniques in the traditional art of weaving, leading to a finished product- a handwoven wall hanging. Weaving is a beautiful, mindful process and this ancient art skill has recently seen a comeback making an impact on Interior design in many forms, one being woven wall hangings with quirky modern twists.
You can expect to learn:
How to warp your own handheld loom
Single and multiple Tabby weaving
Single and Double Soumak
Weaving in weft ends
Knotting warp ends
All materials are included. There will be a wide range of different yarns with a variety of colours and textures. We will be working on wooden handheld looms, which are also available to buy at the end of the class for an additional £10.
Yolanda Chappell completed a Fine Art degree, specialising in painting, however 3 years ago she discovered weaving and hasn’t looked back. Initially inspired by the Bauhaus movement, Yolanda also looks to more contemporary artists for inspiration, and enjoys exploring the traditional skills within weaving as well as experimenting with
different yarns and textures.
Ticket pricing from £ 60.00 to £ 60.00
