Weave Workshop One

Class 4 hours with Karina Thomas MA(RCA)
Tuesday 11th June
10-2.30pm ( with half hour lunch break )
Black Swans Studio, Culverton Farm, Princes Risborough

Spend a few peaceful hours relaxing and learning a new skill. The workshops take place in Black Swan studios, formally the cow shed on Culverton farm, set in the beautiful Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire. Here you will also find the repair barn and gardens full of friendly chickens clucking about. The beautiful amber coloured plaster, old beams and stonework inspire creativity and a gentle mood of wellbeing. We look forward to welcoming you here.

Enjoy learning to weave on a simple tapestry loom. We will explore yarn colours and textures and relax in the creative hub of this class. You will be guided through the techniques and processes in order to come away with your own textural wall hanging.

Karina will start by showing you examples of woven work as inspiration for future development.

During the class you will learn how to;
• make a yarn wrapping, choosing yarns from our store.
• warp up your frame loom and start to introduce weft yarn using simple plain weave.
• change weft colours and make Rya knots to create a three dimensional textural effect.
• introduce motifs into your weave.
• use finishing techniques for removing the weave from the frame.
• this class is suitable for beginners.

You will come away with your own woven wall art and a tapestry frame with instruction sheets to help you continue your weaving.
Materials, yarns and tapestry frame are all included in this workshop.
Workshop duration 4 hours.
Refreshments and homemade cake are provided during the workshop. Please bring your lunch as we do not have a cafe.
