Botanical Weaving with Karen Rubado Michel Thursday 11th August 5.30pm-7.30pm

Join us for a fun 2-hour workshop introducing you to frame weaving with dried flowers and leaves. 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 and flowers will be provided and you’ll be able to take your weaving home with you. If you have wool you’d like to use, you’re welcome to bring it!
