A small art textile with natural materials

In this workshop we weave a small art textile into a prepared ribbon warp using different kinds of straws, twigs, and branches. We begin with a trip to the nature surrounding the Loikansaari estate to collect materials, after which we can already start weaving in the cozy main room of the farmhouse. If the weather is good the entire workshop can be held outside. This is an inspiring crafts experience!
