A big celebration of summer with outdoor weaving and summer dream catchers
Day 1 & 2: We started off the afternoon summer holiday session with dream catcher making. Making these involves lots of different processes – first off we tried wrapping, binding, knot tying and pom-pom making! Lovely summery colours and all finished off with some bright coloured feathers. This activity was a bit of a technical challenge, but everyone did so well and they all went away with some new skills.
Day 3: We rounded up the workshop sessions with weaving outside on my giant tapestry weaving frame. Little fingers soon got to grips with the tricky technique of pulling the back warp forwards and threading their chosen weft through. There were plenty of colours and materials to choose from – wool, paper and some even added lovely scented lavender from the garden.
