Price $130 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Rug Up for winter with this 5 hour beginner workshop with all materials and supplies included. You will create a thick-textured woven floor rug using wool yarn and unspun wool tops (approx. size 85 x 35cm, bathmat size). Due to the thick weft making the weaving process faster, this workshop will also include warping the loom yourself with your selected yarn colour.

Skills covered will include:
* General weaving terminology
* Direct Warping (for a rigid heddle loom)
* Weaving Plainweave (Tabby)
* Posture & tips for avoiding strain
* Advancing the warp & getting the right tension

We will be using a 100% wool yarn and have an option of 100% wool tops or a mixed ‘montage’ tops that includes wool, alpaca & silk. If you are unable to use any of these natural fibres please contact us to discuss alternative options.
Minimum class size of 4 persons applies, in the event that the minimum is not reached the class will not run and we will contact you to either refund the deposit or carry over to another suitable booking.

Suitable for ages 10+ (under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult).

This event is part of the 2023 East Gippsland Winter Festival, running from 9 June - 9 July. For the full festival program, please visit:
