Woven Wall Hangings can be so versatile and beautiful! All different kinds of materials, fibres and other objects can be used to create your very own one-of-a-kind textile artwork! There are so many techniques to use to create all kinds of textures and patterns. This workshop is for beginners but will also be great fun for someone who's tried their hand at weaving before. You'll be taught several different weaving techniques that create different textural effects including tabby, rya and soumak and you'll learn how to weave shapes and patterns. You can see pictures from one of our previous weaving workshops here.

"A great workshop with everything we needed so nicely laid out, Maddie was very helpful and explained everything so that it was all easy to do, loved it!!!"
"The workshop was excellently run. As a beginner I learnt a huge amount and will continue to use these skills I learnt in the worshop. I'll definitely be looking to attend more workshops in the future. Madi was an excellent host and helped out heaps. The materials provided had a great range and I had an awesome time learning new things. Overall a great workshop. "
"Madi was a great instructor at the Loom weaving afternoon at The Corner Store Gallery. Very well set up, instructive and fun. We all were so engrossed the time just flew by... Also delicious catering was supplied to keep the energy flowing... Highly recommend the class which is very popular, and the instructor is very helpful, knows her subject, relaxed and a pleasure to be taught by... Loom weaving becomes obsessive. Hard to put down... Just one more row and another etc... Also with instructions and the frame can carry on making more at home ... a very worthwhile workshop."
