Hello want to be weavers and existing weavers,

This weaving workshop is taught on a table/lap loom and is for complete beginners and intermediates alike that would like to learn a few more techniques and join a weaving community. Amy will be teaching this class in a wonderful events room on the top floor of renowned restaurant Le Mercury in Islington where there will be a chance for a lunch after the class.

Weaving is a very addictive craft. The rhythm one gets into when weaving is a great way to unwind and process the day and thoughts. Weaving is also a massive trend in the craft and Interior world at the moment and it is will be sticking around for a while. Not only does a woven wall hanging look beautiful and adds texture and warmth to a room, it is also such a beautiful, meditative craft and a great way to spend time alone, in front of Netflix or with fellow weaving buddies!

In this half day workshop Amy will be teaching you how to make your own woven wall hanging.

You will learn how to set up your loom, make knots to start and end your weaving and use your tools. You will play with texture and colour through different techniques including Rya knots (Tassels), twining, soumak, and how to add a 3D sculptural element to your weaving.

You will go away from the class confident to set up and weave on your own and with your own hand-woven wall hanging in hand ready to put up in your home or give away as a generous handmade gift!

‘I have been working hard to find a loom I would like to sell and teach on and have found my perfect collaboration partner! You will be weaving on the wonderful true craftsman EJ’s looms from Hatchet and Bear. He carves every loom and tool by hand with such beautiful detailing using seasonal wood using either Elm or Walnut. I cannot express enough what a delight they are to weave on. You can feel his thoughtful design and craftsmanship while you weave!’ Amy
