Introduction to Modern Weaving at The Resident Store in Frome
Have you been lusting after the gorgeous woven wall-hangings in your Instagram feed and are dying to try your hand at this beautiful craft? In this inspiring workshop, Amy Ilić will teach you how to make your own woven wall hanging using a table/lap loom made by local Frome artisan Hatchet & Bear at the wonderful lifestyle store, Resident.
You will learn how to set up your loom, make knots to start and end your weaving and use weaving tools. You will play with texture and colour through different techniques including Rya knots (tassels), twining, Soumak, and learn how to add a 3D sculptural element to your weaving. You will leave class confident to set up and weave on your own and with your own gorgeous hand-woven wall hanging that you can put up in your home or give away as a generous handmade gift!
