DescriptionThis one-day workshop introduced participants to the basics of handloom weaving, tapestry techniques and the potential of found and recycled materials to create new textile ideas.
Starting outdoors I guided them to capture a range of inspiration (shapes, colours and textures) and introduced them to the heritage of textiles at the centre of Huddersfield. We worked with photography, sketching and collage to translate these visuals into a design for their woven cloth.
Working in the Barbara Hepworth Building (University of Huddersfield) with an induction into handloom weaving, the afternoon focused on weaving their own design using a mix of found yarns/discarded materials and stripped-down garments.
