Botanical Weaving Workshop
The workshop is a 4-hour course designed to introduce you to frame weaving with dried and preserved flowers. With some basic tapestry weaving techniques you’ll be on your way to creating your own botanical textile masterpiece.
We’ll be using natural yarn (wool or cotton) to create the tapestry base (warp) and will then employ a tabby weave for the flowers and leaves.
Frame looms, wool, flowers and a take-home guide will be provided plus you’ll be able to take your weaving home with you. If you have wool or other objects you'd like to include in your weaving, you’re welcome to bring them!
