The Mamahood is delighted to be running its first creative workshops in Brighton! We are joining forces again with the Brighton-based textile designer and teacher Amy Ilic, to run a beginners weaving workshop exclusively for local mamas. Join us in the heart of The North Laines, at the wonderful Pop Up Shop Brighton - a gorgeous month long pop-up of independent brands selling design-led kids wear, toys, accessories, homewares, jewellery and womenswear.
If you are yearning to get creative, have a few hours for yourself and meet some other local mamas...well this workshop is for you! Come along with your mama mates or come and make new ones over an evening of cool crafting. And of course a chance shop the beautiful wares while you are there!
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
In this workshop Amy will be teaching you how to make your own woven wall hanging.
You will learn how to warp up and play with texture and colour through making Rya Knots (tassels), twining, using roving (un-spun wool) and weaving and making knots in different ways to create interesting textures, resulting in a very tactile textile wall hanging!
This is aimed at total beginners so no experience is needed and if you have woven before she can hopefully teach you a few new techniques! There will be all sorts of yarns to play with; neon’s, sparkles, pastels, and neutrals, so you can design your own piece ready to hang!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Nothing. Amy will provide everything that you will need to have a ready to hang Wall Hanging. If you do have a favourite yarn or scissors then please bring them along! Feel free to BYO favourite tipple to help your creativity!
£30 per person including all materials. You will also receive a lovely Mamahood goody bag which will include an exclusive discount code to shop at the Pop Up to your hearts content after the workshop!
