Quilt In Clarens
18 June to 21 June 2019

"If life throws you scraps, make a quilt"


Pick up techniques on Rigid heddle  -  two days - Woollen scarf or shawl with decorative border

Maximum of 8 people. 

I have six looms available for people who do not have their own equipment.

Suitable for both beginners and more advanced weavers.

Students will need to supply approx. 300g sock weight yarn ( aapprox 400m/100g) in one colour, plus a small amount of two contrasting colours for the patterned border.

In this workshop we will learn to warp the loom, and start off with the basic weaving technique.

We will explore the use of pick up sticks to create several different patterns as part of the patterned border. Students who have previously done some weaving will weave more complex pick up patterns than the beginner weavers who will focus on more basic patterning possibilities. 

Students to supply their own darning needles, scissors and tape measures.
