Sustainable Materials Weaving Workshop
In Person 2 hours   Textiles
Summary

The Sustainable Materials Weaving Workshop explores how to create new materials from yarns and fibres and weave these into a beautiful handwoven artwork. Students will be taught different techniques to create their own supply of weaving materials from shorter lengths of yarn, fibre and cloth. They will then use these materials to create unique artworks using different weaving techniques and patterns.

What you’ll do

Three 'stations' will be set up for workshop participants, each with the purpose of introducing students to different approaches to creating materials for their handwoven artwork. Students will have the option to cut fabric strips from different textured materials, mix yarns to create cordage using a cord winder and blend wool roving on a blending board to create their own colour blend. Additional natural materials will be available from our studio 'waste'.

What to bring

Yourself! A weaving frame loom will be supplied to work with on the day, including all materials and supplemental equipment (scissors etc).

What you’ll get

Students will come away with a new handwoven artwork and workshop notes to take home.
