Weaving basics with Jennifer Anne Studios

3rd Saturday of every month from 10am – 2pm

An emerging textile and fibre artist from Norfolk, Jenny specialises in hand woven textiles pushing technique and fibre in unusual and contemporary ways. Being a sustainability advocate, Jenny opts for more environmentally friendly fibre and yarn choices which results in the play and experimentation of otherwise wasted materials.

After graduating from Textile Design specialising in weave in 2019, Jenny is currently studying her Master’s at Nottingham Trent University continuing her research within the technical exploration of hand woven cloth in conjunction with the relationship between fibre and cloth and normalisation of using waste-by product materials within the textiles industry. As well as weaving, Jenny is an avid spinner who enjoys pushing the boundaries of unconventional materials and exploring these potentials within her weaves.

Join Jenny in this series of hand weaving workshops to learn the basics of weaving. Using a tapestry loom that Jenny has designed, and laser cut from sustainable AB grading, PEFC certified poplar plywood. The sessions will begin with the basic techniques of warping up your loom and covering some foundation weaving techniques. Experimenting with a variety of yarns and fibres you will have the chance to develop and explore these techniques throughout the workshop with the support of Jenny.

The first session will be an introduction to weaving and the basics, following on from this each session will have a specific focus where we will explore more advanced techniques, adding texture, using a variety of materials, colour and more! At the end of the session, you will go home with your very own woven wall hanging!

The tapestry loom kits are available to rent at the session which is included within the price of the workshop along with a selection of sustainably sourced yarns and materials to complete a woven sample within the session.

There is the option to purchase your own kit at the workshops for a reduced price of £20 (usually £25). The kits include 1 x tapestry frame loom, 1 x comb, 2 x pick up sticks, 2 x shuttles, 1 x large tapestry needle, 2 x small tapestry needles, 3 x yarn bobbins, written instructions on how to set up the loom and a breakdown of the tools and basics to get you started. There is also the option to purchase more fibre and yarn packs at the sessions if you wish.

The main aim of these sessions is to introduce you to the exciting possibilities and potential of weaving and most importantly have fun with it!

Workshops, Shows, Fairs, Shop and Covid.

So much has happened since my last little blog for you to read.

As you may be aware we have been to the NEC, as part of the fashion and creative crafts show. It was great fun, meeting new friends as well as old. So nice to be out and about again.  So many nice people interested in what we are doing. We will be returning in June for another few days of demonstrating and teaching.

Amanda Hislop has visited for a weekend of fun. We limited our colours to 3 and used small amounts of threads and papers with fabrics too. Everyone used similar items but all the results are very different. I am loving working into my little book using threads I have dyed.

Green is not usually my colour but I do like this little book and am looking forward to the finished result.

The next workshops up to Friday the 15th April are all cancelled due to my managing to get Covid. I need the time to recover as well as to give the studio a good scrub. I have switched off the heating to let it get cold in there and once I get a negative result will go in and give it a good scrub.

This also means I will not be in the shop either.  The good news is that I attended the local hospital and was given some hefty antiviral infusions so should be back in no time. I thought I had managed to avoid it. But that is life.  The up side is I have time to finish a few things and take my time over them.  The B&B rooms are also closed for the ten days.

Our next outing, all being well, is at Wellingborough where I will be taking my lovely Lewis and Irene fabrics. The next delivery is at the end of this month where we will have the “Hannah’s flowers ” collection. They are so pretty but I am not sure they will be here in time for Wellingborough this month but should be for the next one. Not sure why this look yellow it is a cream background.

And you will be able to buy your Christmas fabrics from June!

 

Ruth and I have set up an exhibition at Gorleston if you fancy a day out do go and take a peek. There is a very nice café just up the road from the gallery where you can get a good lunch. But we do advise you book first. It is called Margo’s Lounge. It is fabulous.

We will be there on the 23rd for the meet and greets before we take it down.

At the end of the month on the 23rd we have a new workshop with Jenny who is going to teach basic weaving for beginners. This will be a regular workshop and once you have mastered it you can move onto bigger things with Jenny. Booking have started so don’t miss out. The link is https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/weaving-basics-with-jennifer-anne-studios/ 

 

You may also be interested in visiting the West Norfolk Artist Spring Exhibition at Thornham Village hall. This exhibition is not just textiles but all types of art made by local artists. Well worth a visit.

Once you have looked at the lovely art you can pop next door for lunch in the Deli.

 

That all folks.

take Care

Anita
