Want to learn how to weave and make your own hand-crafted, sustainable textile pieces on a rigid heddle loom by using your favorite yarns and colors?

Let your imagination run wild and we will guide you through every step!

The workshop is suitable for beginners who want to take their first steps in the vast world of weaving.

During the workshop, you’ll plan out your design, choose your yarns (warp and weft) and begin transforming your design into a woven scarf. You will learn how to operate a rigid heddle loom, warping, and threading of the loom, hem stitch, plain weave, how to change colors, and several decorative techniques.
We’ll also cover general weaving principles and how to apply these in your work in the future.

You will leave the workshop with an almost 2m long scarf, entirely woven and decorated by your hands and a lot of inspiration for your future projects.

Our partner's philosophy brings together the long-lived art of weaving with contemporary design and global trends to create items of timeless aesthetics.  

The brand’s lifestyle collections are influenced by clear-cut geometric lines and minimal structures deeply rooted in the simplicity of classical Greece.

Each piece is designed and handwoven by experienced, local weavers from initial sketches through to hand finished and embroidered fabric in their loom studio, in Rethymno, Crete.

Artisanal garments of relaxed chic elegance made of lasting quality materials and handloom embroidered patterns.

Join this 4-hour workshop which will teach you all the basics of weaving.

Included: Materials and yarns provided, drinks and snacks will be served.

Cost: 80.00 Euros per person
