UPCOMING WORKSHOP DATES: Sunday 15th April
In May I will be running a series of weaving workshops at the Barbican- find out more and book here: https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2018/event/weaving-workshop-with-christabel-balfour
My Weaving Workshop is a 4-hour class covering everything you need to know to get started with weaving. We’ll cover the basics of warping your loom and starting to weave, before moving on to shape-building, creating texture and mixing colours. Classes are 4-5 people maximum, allowing for plenty of one-to-one teaching. All materials will be provided, including a large selection of wools and yarns for you to work with. You will receive your own handmade loom, weaving tools and instruction booklet to take home, along with wool from my collection.
The workshop takes place in my studio in Peckham, south east London. You’ll be able to learn more about the day-to-day running of a tapestry studio as well as see demonstrations on my floor loom and upright tapestry loom.
Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
