Little Loom Weaving Workshop - 22nd July 2018, Dublin

from 58.00

The Constant Knitter, Dublin, Ireland

This workshop aims to introduce you to the basics of handweaving on a frame loom with a focus on rug making techniques. This is a special workshop to mark the launch of my first weaving book, Little Loom Weaving and includes techniques covered in the book.

You will be guided through from the initials steps of how to set up a loom with a warp for weaving, understanding setts and tension; warp and weft. You will be taught how to handweave in plain weave structure on a frame loom. We will cover the simple edging technique of fringing and how to take the piece off the loom. 
You will be taught the highly textured, traditional rug making techniques of rya knots and soumak stitch. You will create a series of quick samples of each technique to explore and develop. You will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of yarns and fibre types to explore scale, colour and texture. 

Based on the techniques learnt, you will design and create your own contemporary woven piece, suitable for your desired application – interiors, fashion or textile art.

 

You will cover:

 Dressing the loom

 How to handweave in plain weave pattern

 Rya knots

 Soumak stitch

 Fringing and how to take your piece off the loom

  

This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some weave experience who wish to further develop basic techniques.
