3 square loom weaving projects

Here’s a very small woven wall decoration I made for a wee corner of the studio. I improvised with my square loom plus some scraps of thick wool and cotton. It was really fun and quick to weave.

I also wove some small squares to use as make up remover wipes. They are made of machine washable organic cotton which is sooo soft and gentle.

Lastly, some tree decorations. Squares folded in half diagonally and stitched into triangle shapes. Glue a cinnamon stick inside and stitch a sparkly star on the top.

Both these little looms are available from my Etsy shop here.

Beachcomber, dreamweaver

I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.

Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂

Tapestry Weaving in March

Weave your own contemporary wall hanging. Using small frame looms, you will explore simple weaving and knotting techniques and have fun with colour, texture and shape.

Sessions will be from 7-9pm every Thursday evening in March (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th) and will be held at the Little Beehive Co-op in Nelson. Please plan to come along to as many sessions as you can in order to complete your piece – weaving is slow and steady work 🙂 Each session costs $20 plus a little more for the yarns and materials you use.

Everything will be provided but you’re welcome to bring along any special materials you wish to incorporate in your piece. You might also like to go foraging or beach combing for a strong driftwood stick (or something similar that is about 20cm long) to hang your piece from.

There are only 4 places left, so please book soon.
