Originally used as a tool for the weaver to test how yarns would interact on the loom, yarn windings open the vast possibility of closely exploring patterns, colour changes and juxtaposition of fibres through various methods. Join us as we explore its vast potential as an artistic practice and gain newfound sensory experiences through experimentation.  

As we begin to play with fibres, we will look at the interaction and variations that each thread plays against one another. How the colours from our early experiments sit with each other using unrestricted weaving methods. Discover the nuances that only experimentation with the materials will unlock. Using a variety of colourful yarns, simple materials and a board or object as a loom, discovery the joys of playful weaving without technical barriers. 

If you have DK cotton yarns or weaving threads that you would like to incorporate in your piece, please bring these along. 
The workshops are led by fibre artist Stephanie Fradette, an Aberdeenshire-based artist who blends bold colours into her woven, knotted, and tufted wall hangings, showcasing rich textures, contemporary design and craftsmanship. She has recently published her first book “Playful Peg Loom Weaving” and has taught workshops across Scotland sharing the creative possibilities of fibre art.
