This fun workshop will introduce you to a new way of weaving – in a circle! Using just a simple cardboard (or pizza base) loom, you can weave a small wall-hanging, a coaster or a bowl. We will all start with the same basic tools and techniques but you will learn how to add a variety of materials, different tapestry weaving techniques and shaping to make your weaving uniquely yours. A variety of yarns, materials and embellishments will be available and you will take home your own weaving, your loom and a brief instruction leaflet to help you continue weaving at home.
This is very simple weaving, using simple, inexpensive tools so it’s easy to learn and accessible to everyone. No previous experience necessary and you don’t need to bring anything – just bring your creativity and a willingness to experiment and play!
As Trowbridge Museum is closed for refurbishment, the workshop will take place in the Project Space at Drawing Projects UK – situated right next to Trowbridge Train Station www.drawingprojects.uk.
