Weaving Colour and Pattern Workshop with Angie Parker and Penny Wheeler

Monday 2 July, 2018 – Wednesday 4 July, 2018
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Bath School of Art and Design, Sion Hill, Bath BA1 5SF

Join us for a masterclass in weaving colour and pattern and learn from talented and experienced local weavers Angie Parker and Penny Wheeler.

Overview

Set in the beautiful surroundings of Bath School of Art and Design at Sion Hill, Bath, this exclusive three-day colour and pattern weaving masterclass is limited to a maximum of eight students.

You'll work with a dedicated table loom alongside the two tutors, who'll show you how to set up and hand-weave two long-established pattern techniques: Krokbragd and Extra Weft.

You'll create your own design and colour combinations, inspired by colour theory and psychology, and work mostly with woollen yarns.

The workshop is suitable for keen beginners and experienced weavers.
