Weaving

Weaving is a very satisfying method of creating your own fabric from yarn and other materials.

 

It is an ancient craft dating back to before 5,000BC, and fabric was always made by hand up until the industrial revolution.

Weaving together a variety of coloured and textured yarn and using a range of techniques can be a very creative process to produce original items.

 

The fabric can then be made into a wide range of items, including: scarves, bags, clothing, wall hangings, belts etc.
