Come along and join in the weaving fun with Rainie, the weaver behind The Unusual Pear!

In this 3 and a half hour intensive workshop, you will learn the art of weaving on a lap loom and the skills to make your own woven textiles. We will be playing with some beautiful Australian hand dyed wool yarns/fibres and you will be taught a little about which fibres are best used for weaving.

We will be weaving on The Unusual Pear medium bamboo loom which you will be taking home with you at the end of the workshop, along with the small bamboo weaving needle, ball of cotton warp and enough of my beautiful hand dyed yarns to complete your first piece.

In this workshop you will learn how to warp your loom and various types of weaving techniques to create interesting patterns and textures including plain/tabby weave, angles, rya knots, soumak, weaving with roving and many more! Last but not least,you will be taught the crucial technique of taking your finished piece off your loom.
