Weaving workshops at Oriel Davies

Weaving workshops for young people this autumn

Weaving workshops in the gallery space with our current exhibition of contemporary blankets. This exhibition brings together some of Wales’s leading textile artists in a celebration of craft and colour, brightening up our autumn days.
The sessions will include a tour of the exhibition of work by Steve Attwood Wright and Blanket Coverage - a touring show curated by Laura Thomas.

Students will be working in small groups to create a Saori weave. This technique was developed in Japan 40 years ago. Saori weaving has few rules and allows for individuality and self-expression. All materials will be provided but pupils can bring recycled materials too. For example strips of textiles, plastics and papers, leaves and feathers.


Sessions will run on Tuesday and Thursday mornings between mid-November and mid-December from 10am – 11am

You can book a space on one of the following dates:

November 18th, 23rd or 25th
