A Crafty Christmas
There’s no doubt that Christmas is going to be a little different this year. With a lockdown once again in place, we are looking to crafty ways to stay occupied and even make some Christmas presents.
Here are some of the creations by Weavers’ Workshop member, Anne-Marie, decorations and gifts, all home-made.
A pair of cheerfully coloured rugs made of recycled materials:
The ‘warp’ is the long pieces of yarn or other textile which is held in place on a loom or a frame. In the above left example, ribbon has been used.
Looms and frames can vary in size from small handheld frames to huge industrial looms, but the principle is the same. You don’t need a loom or a frame to weave, simple weaving sticks or backstrap are other traditional methods. Find out how we set up our large replica medieval loom here.
Have you taken up or revived any textile crafts this year? We’d love to see your creations on our social media pages.
Huge thanks to Anne-Marie for sharing her beautiful creations.
