WORKSHOP Intuitive Weaving
Weaving is my true love and how I started my fiber journey back in 2015. It is a slow and meditative process. It creates a space for you and your feelings but at the same time, it has a tangible outcome. It is a transcript of your mood and imagination in the form of a cloth.
If textiles have been calling your name, now it’s time to answer! I am excited to share my practice and knowledge with you during this cozy workshop in my sweet studio. You will work with my plant-dyed yarns and create unique pieces under my guidance. No experience in weaving is required!
In this 4 hour class, you will learn the basics of frame loom weaving and make your very first unique wall hanging. Let the materials guide you and see where they take you. Your intuition will take the driver's seat while you slow down your thoughts for one afternoon.
This workshop will cover:
- different types of looms and different ways to weave
- what fibers and yarns to use
- warping a frame loom and using the tools
- basic weaving techniques: plain weave, knots, fringe, braids, loops, etc.
- how to take it off the loom and hang it up
We will work with my own yarn stash and fabric offcuts, natural and dyed with plants. You will have a chance to purchase the loom after the class.
This workshop will be held in English but questions in German can be answered too. If you're a beginner or have only a basic knowledge of the subject, this introductory workshop is for you.
All materials will be provided, including yarns and looms.
