Start your weaving journey with the wonderful Susannah Bolton this season where she will be teaching you all you need to know to get to know your loom.
You'll be working with stunning hand-made notched lap looms and will learn all about the anatomy of the loom before planning a small tapestry and starting to weave.
Susannah will be providing an extensive range of yarns including some beautiful and rare vintage tweed wools and silks!
You'll have the option to work from a planned image or if you're feeling a little more adventurous - to free weave and just see where the patterns, colours and yarns take you.
At the end of the session you'll be taught how to remove your finished piece from the loom - securing and tying off your finished tapestry and will have the option to buy a loom (rrp £60) if you would like to continue your practice at home.

Join experienced artist teacher and SAS founder Ellie Green for a comprehensive introduction to the Lino Printing process suitable for absolute beginners.
Linoleum is one of the most versatile materials for creating a long-lasting print block.
During this workshop you'll explore the range of options available for designing and carving a print block - exploring not only carving techniques, but how to get the most out of both the positive and negative space in your design.
Ellie will also offer guidance on the types of ink available to you (we only work with non-toxic vegetable oil based inks - professional quality with beautiful vibrant pigments) and how to work safely with them. We will explore both hand-printing methods and press-based practice through the workshop.
The workshop will also support your creative development and Ellie will be sharing some fun and interesting ideas to help you find your own unique style.
