For complete beginners – a walk, a weaving workshop and an informal talk about weaving by hand loom weaver Susie Redman discussing pattern and colour.
The morning began with a walk in The Meadows with collection of grasses, string and other items en route. The group then gathered in the ArtiScience Library at Summerhall for a simple weaving workshop. Attendees used a simple weaving frame and incorporated materials found during a preceding walk.
Inspired by the weavers met during Our Linen Stories 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.
