3 hour workshop

Daytime

This 3 hour workshop will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful piece of woven wall art on a frame loom.

You will learn how to warp up your loom and gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as tabby weave, rya knotting, looping and pattern making. You will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage, small batch and unusual yarns to create texture and colour. I will guide you through the design process, exploring different threads of inspiration, and helping you to translate elements and scenes from the natural world or elsewhere into woven form, using a range of techniques and materials to achieve different woven styles.

By the end of the session, you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.

The class is designed for both beginner weavers and also those wishing to develop their weaving style and meet other weaving enthusiasts. All materials and equipment will be provided. You will receive your own handmade loom, weaving tools and weaving guide to take home with you to continue your weaving journey.

The class will be limited to a small number of people to ensure plenty of time to get to know each other and to allow lots of one to one teaching.

I will provide plenty of inspirational material to help you design your weave but if you have a particular scene or landscape you would like to capture, please bring along a picture.

Mary's workshop was brilliant. From the moment you stepped into Mary's lovely house you felt like you were welcome. Mary is an approachable, knowledgable and warm person- everything you could want in a workshop host! This is a really special class and although it is a bit on the pricy side Mary pulls out all the stops and makes it worth it!

Mary was a wonderful host and teacher! The most perfect afternoon spent eating homemade cake, drinking endless cups of tea and learning to weave with the most beautiful quality wools in Mary's lovely sunny home. The take-home kit has everything you need to keep going too. Worth every penny :)

About your host, Mary Maddocks

Mary Maddocks is a textile artist based in South East London.

Her work combines a passion for woven crafts with a lifelong love of the natural world; she create wall hangings and woven jewellery inspired and informed by natural landscapes, colours and textures. She is particularly drawn to the landscapes of West Wales and the Scottish Highlands, places that hold a special magic for her and where she has spent many happy days.

She hosts weaving workshops for others wanting to create their own woven wall art and absorb themselves in the gentle, meditative craft of weaving.

She creates most of her woven art from her shed-studio at the bottom of her garden!
