Eco Weaving - A workshop weaving with waste fibres and fabrics.

Enjoy a relaxed, mindful session learning how to create woven art from waste fibres and fabrics with tapestry artist Lucy Sugden.

You will create a piece inspired by the natural world, such as plant life and landscapes, or enjoy experimenting with different colours and textures. As you weave you will learn about your warp and weft and how to use woven tapestry techniques to create simple but effective woven art.

This workshop is suitable for beginner weavers with no experience, as well as those who have some knowledge and wish to further develop skills! Lucy will have sample pieces to inspire you and designs to follow if you wish.

Looms will be ready for you to use, and a selection of fabrics, wools, ribbons, and beads will be provided. You are welcome to bring any fabrics of your own you want to include in your weaving.

The day will run from 11am-1pm before a short lunch break and restarting at 1:30-2:30pm. This workshop will be at the Verulamium Museum. Please bring your own lunch.

About Lucy Sugden

Lucy is a woven tapestry artist from Letchworth Garden City, with a degree in Constructed Textiles. A member of The British Tapestry Group, The Wynd Gallery and various textiles associations she regularly exhibits locally and nationally, along with delivering talks, workshops, and courses.

Her woven work explores a fascination of light play with a love of wildlife and beneficial flowers found in local habitats and is often inspired by her garden walks around the fields of Letchworth. 

It is important to Lucy to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres which has become an integral part of how she works, and often has a direct effect on design and size of a piece, while exploring combining fibres.

Lucy sources British wools and recycled yarns and fabrics for use during her teaching and workshops.

This event is taking place as part of SustFest24
