Weaving with Waste

In this one-day course, led by Sarah Cooke, you will learn how to weave using recycled materials, such as plastic packaging, baler twine, electric cables, old clothes – things which are about to be thrown away, but can be turned into something lovely.

You can make a small bag, a table mat or an attractive wall hanging, or covered notebook. The emphasis is on experimenting and having fun using unconventional materials.

Suitable for complete beginners and experienced weavers.

The cost is £60 per person. All equipment and materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own plastic packaging, old phone cables, jewellery or even old Christmas decorations! You have the option to buy the weaving frame, shuttle and pickup stick for £15 at the end of the session.
