Between the 23rd and 27th May I’ll be holding some workshops at the Buddhafield Green Earth Awakening in Devon.
In this workshop you can learn how to weave on a simple cardboard loom. We will be weaving with woollen yarn and using cardboard looms that are easy to make D.I.Y versions of at home. This workshop will give you basic weaving skills and the chance to create your own woven piece. You could make a mini blanket, a wall pieces, wallet or small bag.
Felt bead making
In this workshop you will learn basic wet felting principles and create felted balls/beads that can later be made into jewellery in the macramé jewellery workshop. For those of you who’ve been to the basic weaving workshop you can bring along your woven piece and give it a felted finish at this workshop.
In this workshop you will use a macramé technique to create a piece of hemp jewellery. There will be a selection of glass and wooden beads to use. If you have been to the felt bead making workshop bring the beads along and you can use them to create a piece of jewellery.
This workshop is an introduction to tablet weaving and you’ll get a chance to make a strong narrow band. The band can be used as decorative edging for textiles, a waistband, drawstring, bag handle, shoelace, bookmark or bracelet etc. This technique requires very little equipment, can be done in most places and can be taken down and set up again at any point during the weaving process.
