London: 1st – 11th July
Taught by Ayse Simsek, Central Saint Martins, University or The Arts London.

The second part of the course will take place in Central Saint Martins’ weave department where you will create a collection of hand-woven fabric samples using a table-top loom, inspired by your time in Istanbul and the prints you produced there.

You will be introduced to hand weaving starting with the technical aspects of loom set-up and how it can affect the final product leading to you making your own samples. By rotating round a number of looms during the nine days you will have an opportunity to create a variety of different samples using different techniques – combining different yarns colours and weave patterns to create something unique to you. You will create a collection of beautiful samples that will be an impressive addition to your portfolio.

No experience of weave is required to attend this course; however you will be expected to develop your own weave designs and patterns so some design experience will be useful.
