During this one day workshop, you will learn to weave small pieces using two different handheld looms. These frame looms have been specially designed by tutor Karuna and have been manufactured in New Zealand. There will be a range vibrant and luxurious yarns available for you to use including commercial and hand-dyed New Zealand merino, alpaca and wool/silk.
Taking inspiration from our vibrant local area and surroundings, you will first weave ‘magic squares’ to make a ‘tapa-style' flower brooch. Then, use a circle loom to weave small bowl shape items which can be used either as a tiny trinket/ear-ring bowl or made into another brooch.
No previous experience required. All materials will be supplied and are included in the cost of the workshop. Students can take the looms home so they can keep weaving.
"We will be weaving alongside the Mini Hoops embroidery workshop giving you a chance to be inspired by this exquisite embroidery too."
