Weaving with Natural Plant Based Yarns

60.00

Learn how to make your own woven wall hanging with weaver Amy Ilić, working on a wonderful hand carved loom from Hatchet and Bear in the wonderfully natural, nurturing space of A·S Apothecary in Lewes.

Amy writes: this workshop is for two types of weaver. I love to welcome beginners, but I am also making space for those who have come onto my workshop before, and who would like to practice old techniques and learn new ones. 

Using beautiful, naturally hand dyed plant-based yarns, you will learn how to set up your loom, make knots to start and end your weaving, and get to grips with weaving tools. You will play with texture and colour, exploring various techniques including Rya knots (tassels), twining, and Soumak. You’ll take home your own gorgeous hand-woven natural wall hanging as well as the confidence to weave on your own. 

The workshop will be in the tranquil Lewes A.S.APOTHECARY shop and there'll be plenty of tea, coffee and delicious cake to enjoy. 

Materials and tools will be provided as well as a variety of beautiful yarns for you to choose from, but if you do have your own favourite piece of yarn and a pair or scissors you'd like to work with, please feel free to bring them along
