Saturday 18 May 2019
11am – 4pm

Join Useful/Beautiful artist Maria Sigma for an in depth workshop which will teach you all the basics of weaving and how to turn your household waste textiles from old T-shirts to pillowcases into textile masterpieces.

The workshop will provide you with a thorough and intensive grounding in hand-weaving. You will learn foundational weaving skills, such as warping, loom set up, colour blending and structure, and basic weaving techniques and patterns. Not only will you cover a wide range of styles but also learn how to develop your own distinctive voice as a weaver. You can make a small wall hanging, pieces for a patchwork, a clutch bag or an abstract artwork, and plenty more. Let your imagination run wild!

A small wooden frame loom, weaving tools and instructions booklet will be provided in a recycled-cotton pouch to take home. Materials and yarns will be also provided, but do bring your own textiles to recycle – tablecloths, bed sheets, pillowcases and T-shirts.
Refreshments and a sandwich lunch are included with this workshop. Please notify us of any dietary requirements you may have.

Please make your way to the Information Point at the top of the carpark on arrival at 11am, where a member of the Harewood Team will be there to meet you. Please remember to bring your own recycled textiles with you to use throughout the workshop.
