About The Event
A workshop that combines the ancient craft of peg loom weaving with a space to reflect, dream and make. A time to busy the hands and quiet the mind as we explore different fibers, colours and ways of working with raw wool. Everyone will leave with their own unique sitting matt and will have learnt about weaving, how to thread the peg loom and how to weave to create different patterns and blocks of colour.
I am have a background in the arts, nature connection, facilitation and group work. This workshop reflects the alchemy of a craft based on raw materials from the land and the processes that turn it into something new. It is a time to embody a craft and allow our hands to lead the process. Over the last 8 years I have been weaving and developing these dreaming mats; travelling to meet shepherds, small holders weavers, spinners and small flocks, exploring how fibre can be used to connect communities and build connection with the land.
