Book now: Woven Wall Art Workshop with textile artist @marymaddocks this Thursday 21 June 6.30-8.30pm for only £45!
This 2 hour workshop will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful piece of woven wall art on a frame loom.
You will learn how to warp up your loom and gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as tabby weave, rya knotting, looping and pattern making. You will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage, small batch and unusual yarns to create texture and colour. I will guide you through the design process, exploring different threads of inspiration, and helping you to translate elements and scenes from the natural world or elsewhere into woven form, using a range of techniques and materials to achieve different woven styles.
By the end of the session, you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.
The class is designed for both beginner weavers and also those wishing to develop their weaving style and meet other weaving enthusiasts. All materials and equipment will be provided and there will be a chance to purchase a handmade wooden loom and weaving kit after the class.
Mary Maddocks is a textile artist based in South East London. Her work combines a passion for woven crafts with a lifelong love of the natural world; she create wall hangings and woven jewellery inspired and informed by natural landscapes, colours and textures. Mary will provide plenty of inspirational material to help you design your weave but if you have a particular scene or landscape you would like to capture, please bring along a picture.
