The British designer Mary Quant was part of the 1960s fashion revolution and used cloth from Trowbridge mills for her miniskirts and hot pants. In this beginners workshop we will be weaving some of the cloth designs ordered by Quant, and talk about how she used the fabric for her fashionable garments. Weaving on the easy-to-use rigid heddle loom, we will explore a variety of techniques and talk about the next step should you like to start weaving your own fabrics at home. You will be able to take home your samples and instructions.
No previous experience is necessary and all materials will be supplied.
