프로그램

An introduction to Scottish weaving for beginners. You will start by warping a four-shaft floor loom. I’ll introduce you to the significance of certain tartans and their history, and explain the essential four-shaft weave structures: twill, waffle weaves, dogtooth. I will discuss the significance of wool in Scottish history, and cultural value of different yarns alongside their functions (eg. the Borders’ cashmere, Glasgow’s linen, and Dundee’s jute for whaling ships). By the end of the course, you will have an insight into Scotland through its cloth, have woven your own tartan, and gained the skills to start weaving at home.

There is so much to learn about a country through its cloth and I look forward to sharing my knowledge. I can also advise you on the best types of loom and places to buy them, and where to source equipment.

  • 본인 인증 완료
I grew up weaving and moved to Edinburgh seven years ago. After studying fine art, I returned to weaving and have studied specialist techniques including shibori in Japan, backstrap looms in Guatemala, renaissance velvets in Switzerland. I am now working on a PhD on early European weaving developments while working with the textiles at the National Museum of Scotland. I love Edinburgh’s rich textile history, from the characteristic tartans to many fantastic heritage mills that have been working for centuries in the borders and highlands.
