Weaving week for Hand on Crafts

This week, our Hand on Crafts project worked on some weaving with the artist Tania Oakshott and some volunteers from the weavers guild. Using simple wooden frames, they learnt how to attach the warp threads and start weaving. Tania took them through various techniques using different equipment and showed them this simple video to explain the basic principles of the technique http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbtKnvc_9No.

Next week, we'll be starting with some paper based crafts as we begin our book binding and print making taster sessions. 

 

 

Hand on Crafts is an inter-generational amateur crafts programme, initiated by Voluntary Arts and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. It offers a two-way approach to improve interest and involvement in specific at-risk traditional crafts amongst young people, whilst developing the skills and abilities of older representatives of traditional crafts organisations to reach out across the age gap.
