For complete beginners – a walk, a weaving workshop and an informal talk by textile engineer and PhD Candidate Abdul Nasan. Abdul discussed his background industrial experience in Syria and current work to create innovative textile engineering products.

We incorporated materials found during a preceding walk in The Meadows into a simple tapestry weave, all terms and techniques explained on the day, harnessing the hand-crafting and meditative benefits of walking and weaving for well-being.

Inspired by the weavers met during our tours, Journeys in Design is supporting the development of further ‘Wild Weaving’ workshops, harnessing the powers of walking and weaving to enhance well-being. We engage local weavers to lead our workshops and invite them to share their Weavers Tales. Our Workshops were devised with the assistance of Akshata Mokashi MA (Distinction) Heriot Watt University, Textiles and Design.
