Ribbons & Trims Workshop: Ayse Simsek

summer school imageAyse Simsek will be running a ribbons and trims weaving workshop from 13th July – 17th July 2015. The workshop will be using 8 shaft table-top looms and participants will be designing and making ribbons and decorative trims which can be used for a variety of end uses including; fashion, accessories, interiors and other craft projects.

This workshop provides the perfect platform to both begin to learn the process of loom set-up and to get to grips with some weaving techniques, as you will be working on a small scale. Experienced weavers also very welcome. All the skills you learn are fully adaptable to create larger fabrics on a loom.

The workshop will start by designing a ribbon warp based on colours and yarns that inspire you. Participants will  be guided through the process of making a warp, putting it onto a loom and threading up and how to weave. Using a variety of materials and techniques you are encouraged to experiment finding designs that you like, which  participants will  produce in longer lengths. At the end of the week the finished pieces will be taken off  the loom, and  potential  finishing techniques discussed and the end use of the ribbons and trims
