Weaving is one of the methods of textile production that consists of two distinct sets of yarn –the warp and the weft –which interlock to form a single piece of fabric or cloth. UMAG is offering weaving workshops for adults and children to explore this ancient craft. Participants will have the opportunity to use a traditional weaving handloom to create some simple patterns such as square, semi-circle and triangle, with a variety of different yarns to choose from. The workshop is designed to teach basic weaving techniques and to allow participants to explore a variety of materials and colours as part of the weaving process; therefore, it is unlikely that the entire weaving will be completed in the allotted class time. Note: All materials will be provided and all looms must be returned at the end of each workshop.
