If you've ever wanted to learn to weave and take our Intro to Weaving workshop in our studio but have been unable to due to lockdowns, available dates or if you live abroad, then this is the workshop for you!
Skill Level: Beginner
Our new Online Intro to Weaving workshop is a fun and explorative way to learn a new craft skill without needing to follow a rigid curriculum. Cassandra will guide you to learn plain weave, twills, hop sack, ribs and techniques like Soumak, Rya knots (and more!) all from the comfort of your own home.
Her unique design approach (which she uses in her own practice at Cassandra Sabo Designs) combines hand-weaving AND tapestry weaving, two different ways of approaching this contemporary craft. As she explains the difference between the two, she will also encourage you to understand your weaving aesthetic so that you can develop your own individual way of weaving.
What You Will Learn
Through a period of 4 hours (with a 20min break in the middle), you will learn how to weave your very own wall-hanging using a variety of gorgeous yarns and fibres in your choice of colour.
Using one of our uniquely designed frame looms & weaving tool sets you will learn to:
Set up your first warp
Learn a combination of basic & contemporary tapestry & hand-weaving techniques
Experiment with a variety of yarns and fibres
Learn how to tidy loose ends away for a professional finish
Remove your work from the frame loom using a hanging rod
