Weaving Kiosk: a workshop for experimental weaving
In November 2017, I participated in a workshop called Weaving Kioski, which is hosted by a Danish textile artist Rosa Tolnov Clausen.
The idea of the workshop is to make weaving easier and more approachable for everyone. Since in Nordic countries, the weaving culture has become weaker due to the demands of relevant skills and equipment. Nowadays people prefer crocheting or knitting instead of weaving.
The aim of this workshop is to explore and experience as much as possible of the weaving techniques and materials. The workshop offers looms and all kinds of weaving yarn. I also brought my own yarn just to see how it turns out.
Here are the prototpypes I made by combining plarn (plastic bag yarn) with weaving yarn.
