Date:   Sat 9 September 2017
Time:   13:00 – 16:00

This workshop will show you how to design and hand make a wall hanging on a frame loom.

There is a growing trend for wall hangings and this class will guide you through all the basics to make your own.

The workshop will be led by Georgia Fisher, a London-based weave designer, who will be covering everything from making the warp, through to weaving techniques, and how to plan your design, all the way to finally taking it off the loom and and attaching it to its hanging structure, ready to take home and display.

A selection of luxurious yarns will be provided, along with the materials needed for the hanging structure and each student will have their own frame loom to use for the afternoon. No need to bring anything with you, unless there is a special yarn you would like to include in your hanging.

Georgia Fisher studied at the Royal College of Art and now works as a freelance fabric designer for fashion houses around the world. She is now also building her own brand of luxury woven products.
