A workshop that combines the ancient craft of peg loom weaving with a space to reflect, dream and make. A time to busy the hands and quiet the mind as we explore different fibres, colours and ways of working with raw wool. Everyone will leave with their own unique sitting matt and will have learnt about weaving, how to thread the peg loom and how to weave to create different patterns and blocks of colour.
Professional artist and crafter Naomi Hannam has a background in the arts, nature connection, facilitation and group work. This workshop reflects the alchemy of a craft based on raw materials from the land and the processes that turn it into something new. It is a time to embody a craft and allow our hands to lead the process. Over the last 9 years Naomi has been weaving and developing these dreaming mats; travelling to meet shepherds, small holders weavers, spinners and small flocks, exploring how fibre can be used to connect communities and build connection with the land.
‘A rich and nourishing day that gave me the time to reflect, imagine and dream. I left with a sitting mat that holds the seeds of those dreams. I loved it!’ Participant 2019
Cost: £80 per person plus 20% discount on food and drink on the day.
