Christine Brimer from Niche Textile Studio in Wellington will be joining forces with the Palliser Ridge team to offer Weave Workshops here at the Palliser Ridge Woolshed.


In this small group workshop you will be guided to weave your own piece of cloth on a vintage table loom, pre-warped with Palliser Ridge’s Romney lambswool.
At the end of class you will take home a finished muffler scarf or table runner, or a piece of fabric sufficient to sew into a zipper purse.

 

The day begins at 10.30am over a cuppa while we chat about how looms work to create a variety of weave structures and motifs commonly seen in woven cloth. You will learn useful weave techniques and practice some sample weave structures, then work to complete your own project.

 

What is provided:


Tuition on a pre-warped vintage 4 shaft table loom
Palliser Ridge lambswool yarn, including a selection of Kindly Dyer naturally dyed Palliser Ridge yarn to add small moments of colour to your work.
Tea, coffee and gluten free baking

 

What to bring:

Comfortable clothing
A packed lunch
Water bottle

Your are welcome to bring your own natural dyed Palliser Ridge yarn if you have attended a Kindly Dyer natural dye workshop previously at Palliser Ridge.

Christine Brimer is a Wellington based weaver and textile designer. In her studio practice she weaves with wool from naturally coloured sheep, grown and processed in New Zealand.
