ABSTRACT PAPER ART AND WEAVING
This is a relaxed and explorative class focussed on the art of weaving to create pattern, colour and abstract designs.
We will learn the principles of weaving through paper, and in doing so, discover new ways to make colourful, abstract drawings.
Using coloured paper, we will learn to make a paper 'loom' to take on an abstract design through weaving.
Exploring abstract patterns by cutting strips to different scales and working with varying colours, we will begin to experiment with simple drawings in crayon or oil pastel and creating new paper ‘weft’ for weaving, to make experimental drawings.
Please note, these workshops will need a minimum of 6 attendees to run. If the minimum subscription is not reached, the class will unfortunately not go ahead.
In the event of cancellation, we will notify the bookers email up to 4 days before the event.
