You will learn how to set up your loom, make knots to start and end your weaving and use your tools. You will play with texture and colour through different techniques including Rya knots (Tassels), twining, soumak, and how to add a 3D sculptural element to your weaving.
You will go away from the class confident to set up and weave on your own and with your own hand-woven wall hanging in hand ready to put up in your home or give away as a generous handmade gift! There will be a chance to buy the loom you are working on at the end of the class, made by a local woodworker in Ericiera.
