For complete beginners – a workshop and informal talk about weaving.
Inspired by the weavers met during Our Linen Story tours, Journeys in Design is supporting the development of local ‘Wild Weaving’ workshops. Attendees weave on a simple frame using materials found during a preceding walk, harnessing the hand-crafting and meditative benefits of walking and weaving. Journeys in Design engages local weavers to lead our workshops and share their Weavers Tales.
Our inaugural Workshops formed part of Our Linen Stories Edinburgh, devised with the expert guidance of Akshata Mokashi MA (Distinction) Heriot Watt University, Textiles and Design. We were delighted to partner with Artiscience Library at Summerhall walking before the workshop in The Meadows parkland nearby.
In September we were joined by Guest Weaver James Donald of PickOne Productions to discuss elements of Weaving Practice.
