Woolly Workshops – Weaving Without a Loom
October 15, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm| £12
Learn how to weave a seamfree bag on a simple cardboard loom. Make a small bag or cover for an item such as a phone or kindle. You will learn how to warp the loom and some simple tapestry weaving patterns such as spots and stripes. Those who have some previous experience can learn how to weave a bag with a flap.
Monday 15 October, 9.30am – 12 noon. Tutor: Nikki Little
Suitable for: everyone
Materials – please bring a piece of strong cardboard; ruler and pencil; scissors; warp thread eg crochet cotton which won’t stretch; wool or other fibre for weft in one colour or a variety of colours and thicknesses (this is a great way to use up your stash); blunt ended wool needle – ones with flexible plastic eyes are ideal.
All our workshops are at the Liskerrett Community Centre this year. Their Hub Cafe serves delicious vegetarian food at affordable prices – why not treat yourself to lunch while you’re there.
You can book in person or over the phone at Liskeard TIC which is in the same building as the museum on Pike Street, 01579 349148
