Workshop Announced: Loom Weaving

If you live within an easy shot of Brisbane, I've got fantastic news to share today...

Ellie from @petalplum and I are throwing a loom weaving workshop at Showroom!

Come along to learn this wonderfully addictive craft and make your own wall hanging artwork. Using botanically dyed yarns, handspun wools, metallic threads, vintage fabrics and other found materials, you'll be guided to create a piece that celebrates your creative self.

Loom weaving is experiencing a well-deserved spot in the current modern-crafts limelight. In this workshop we will look at traditional stitches and techniques used in a modern way. Ellie will help you tap into your own creative voice and share her stories of conversing with materials to create your own unique work of art - rather than copying the trends.

When ::

Saturday, 21 March 2015, 10:30am - 2pm

(light refreshment & bottomless cups of tea included)

You'll go home with ::

+ your own Australian-made wooden weaving loom (wooden heddle an additional $25)

+ yarn to finish your weaving

+ instruction booklet

+ a new found love and skills to keep making weavings for your whole family. 

Ellie will have an assortment of yarns and materials to use, including her own naturally plant dyed yarns, homespun wool, silken and metallic threads, and special vintage fabrics as well as op-shopped yarns. These textures and colours will alight creative fires for you and inspire amazing pieces of woven work and interesting conversations.
