Two-Day Weaving Workshop
July 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - July 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm£120
Learn an ancient weaving technique favoured by Huguenot weavers with our exhibiting artist Hannah Robson. Hannah will guide you through this two-day workshop to create a sample piece of weaving. The Lampas method is ideal for creating more complex figuring and pattern in weaving. This workshop is suitable for those with some weaving experience wishing to extend their knowledge and skills.
You may be able to bring your own loom to this workshop – please ask us for more details and do not book on Eventbrite.

Price includes lunch and refreshments on both days as well as admission to the galleries.
