One Day Course – Cost – tba
Date to be confirmed
Your tutor Jenny Pritchard is one of our regular tutors with a wealth of experience. Come and join Jenny for a craft day with a difference.
“In an effort to reduce my contribution to landfill, I rarely throw anything away and most things get reused, composted or made into something else.
Using beautifully made, low tech, wooden peg looms, we will be weaving worn out clothes and household textiles into colourful and useful small rugs or seat pads.
Not only is “upcycling” beneficial to the environment, it is also great fun!
You will learn how to “warp” a peg loom, how to prepare and use “weft” in weaving and how to finish your project.
All materials for the day will be provided but if you’d like to bring anything along to use, please feel free to do so. Old sheets, towels, clothing or any other unwanted textiles can be turned into something different.
A child’s outgrown clothing could be used to make a “memory” rug.
Join us on a day of weaving”.
