A Day of Weaving

A Day of Weaving

£58/£55(c) • Friends £56/£53(c)

Enjoy a fun filled day creating your very own decorative weaving; with passionate textile artist Rebecca Connolly.

Everyone will have their own loom that will be set up and ready to go, allowing you with as much time as possible for weaving.

You will be encouraged to experiment using a wide range of yarns with a bias towards British Wool in its un-dyed natural colour and plant-dyed colour as used in Rebecca’s own practice. 

The weaving you create is yours to take home - to enjoy as a hanging, to embellish a garment, trim a cushion or with some simple stitching made into something ‘useful’. Enjoy a creative, meditative day embracing the concept of ‘Slow Textiles’.
