The Woodland Haberdasher with Textilia Weave

You will spend Saturday making a selection of different fibres to create your own woven master work. Learn how to spin with spinning wheels and drop spindles using locally sourced fleeces. Hand twist natural cordage from elm and lime tree bast as well as stinging nettles and experiment with colouring them with natural pigments. Dye a range of pre-prepared fibres, to add extra colour and vibrancy to your work. 

On Sunday you will receive expert weaving tuition using a table top loom. Be inspired by the Fen and weave all your fibres together to make your own beautiful artwork. This is a free weave session with no rules, so if you wish to add twigs, leaves or grasses into your weave it's up to you to explore your creativity.
