Learn to Weave Workshop at the Canberra Wool Expo 2023- Sat 20th & Sun 21st May 2:00-3:30
Join Fibre Artist Julianne Ehlert-Connor from Fibre Art in Australia, at the Canberra Wool Expo 2023 and create a beautiful Woven Wall Hanging for your home. Learn the art of weaving on a Loom. In the one and a half hour workshop you will learn how to prepare you Loom for weaving and be taught a variety of different weaving techniques using different yarns and fibres to create volume and texture in your weaving. You will also learn how to take your weaving off the Loom and finish it off for hanging.
The Dream Weaver Kit available includes a Beechwood Loom 29.7 x 18.7 cm (pictured in image 4). The Kit includes the following; A Loom warped up and ready to weave. A weaving Comb and Weaving Needle. A Shuttle, one Fibre Packs for weaving, two pieces of Dowel (for hanging your weavings), Warp Thread, a Beginner's Guide to Weaving all in a Calico Bag.
