Here are Stuart A. and Clare B. with their finished IKAT weaving projects. It’s a unique weaving and painting process we’ve been experimenting with in our Art & Craft Workshop. We painted our plan warps based on sketchbook drawings, then woven the dyed yarn to create fabric.

We had a blast making these Festive Wreaths! Big thanks to Lidia and Terry for the enjoyable hands-on afternoon. There was a great choice of lovely coloured ribbons and lots of greenery to create with, and everyone had a great time. Thanks to our in-house photographer Alex, for capturing the workshop.
