Weave a Wall Hanging Like a Pro Workshop

Learn all you need to complete a woven wall hanging.



3 hours 1 to 6 label $175


Come join Sky in this three-hour weaving experience where you make your own woven wall hanging. Using an array of materials including beautiful yarns, Sky will teach you the technical elements of weaving that can be used to create a variety of looks. Not only do you get to play and experiment with different materials but you will weave on Sky's 'own designed' bamboo weaving loom and tools. These are yours to keep (valued at $65) so you can continue your weaving journey with plenty of post class support. Sky also generously shares her studio tips and techniques that are unique to her practice developed over years of looming.

Express yourself with materials that echo soft, warm, evocative and inviting vibes. Leave Sky’s workshop with your very own woven wall hanging to adorn your home with.

Here are two ideas for larger classes:
(1) Weave a small wall hanging and take home the loom and weaving tools.
(2) Weave a square as part of a large group project. At the end of the lesson Sky will collect everyone’s contribution and make it into a large wall hanging which Sky will deliver upon completion.

This workshop is a great way to spend a Saturday. Sky is a welcoming host, providing delicious tea and snacks, and her studio is peaceful and inviting. It's satisfying to go from no weaving experience to finishing a small hanging in just a few hours. Highly recommended!

This workshop was so much fun! Sky is a wonderful teacher. We learned the basics of weaving and lots of techniques to create different effects. The studio and the class had a lovely feel about it, like catching up with friends (the cake and tea was a beautiful extra touch!). I can’t wait to try out more classes with Sky!

If you are going to learn to weave, do yourself a favour and pop in to Skye's cosy studio for a class. You will leave with a cute first project and she explains everything as you go. No prior knowledge necessary. Good quality materials also.

Really enjoyed this weaving class with Sky. The venue was perfect and with all the materials provided and a finished wall hanging to take home it was a very rewarding experience. Plus providing morning tea.
