Weaving workshop in Hanover House

Make DIY yarn with discarded textiles, learn weaving techniques and create your own artwork with Rachel Wood from Wunder Weave.

Educating yourself about fashion waste and landfills doesn’t have to be dry.

Hosted by fiber artist and weaving teacher Rachel Wood of Wunder Weave, the Weaving Workshop teaches you how to make your own ‘scrap-estry’ – or woven wall hangings – using recycled textiles. Wood walks you through the process of deconstructing old clothes and textiles to make yarn, as well as the essentials of carpet weaving, including preparing a loom and a range of different weaving techniques.

Weaving Workshop is part of Beta by Sth Bnk’s experimental series of events designed to raise environmental awareness by repurposing fashion waste. The workshop will be held at Future From Waste Lab in Hanover House, which has recently been transformed and animated with the work of South Sudanese artist Atong Atem.

Classes are limited to 15 people and all materials are included in the ticket price.
