Vad du kommer att göra
My classes are for one day with 6 hours of tuition. Using the Ashford rigid heddle loom, students are taught the principles of free art style weaving, a relaxed and mindfull way of using yarn to to release your creativity. This style is all about colour and texture and students are encouraged to be adventurous, maybe including found objects in their weaving. The aim is to complete an item to take home, for instance a scarf, wall hanging, table runner or a piece of fabric to make into a bag or cushion. Tea, coffee and homemade cake are included and there's time to interact with other students and look at advanced weaving techniques. Many of my students go on to purchase their own loom and I can facilitate that. My classes are suitable for all ages (over 8) and aim to be fun, relaxed and creative.
I am a hand loom weaver specialising in a free art style which I have practised and taught for the last 10 years. I lived in New Zealand for 10 years and enjoyed learning many styles of weaving, felting and dyeing and now use NZ Ashford looms for teaching. I have a large studio in Felixstowe town centre with a huge stash of yarns from around the world which are available to my students. I teach a maximum of 6 students at a time but can accommodate smaller groups if required. My studio is a light and airy place (accessible) and I provide refreshments, books on weaving and other inspirational material. I have travelled extensively and enjoy studying textile practices wherever I go bringing back samples and inspiration! My classes are for everyone and I have taught from age 8 to 80. I have exhibited my work both home and abroad.
