It's the perfect time to embrace something new! Weaving is the perfect new hobby to do at home, in the park and on the beach or even on the train.
You will learn the basics of weaving during a 3-hour workshop with Siobhan, a visiting weave lecturer at the University of Brighton and the founder of Shiv Textiles, a Brighton-based sustainable textiles studio.

"I went to Shiv’s weaving workshops this weekend and what a treat! It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Shiv was very patient and knowledgeable. I am a complete novice, and the experience gave me a better understanding and appreciation for the fabrics we use everyday and the skill involved in making our favourite clothes. I would highly recommend taking an afternoon to learn a new skill and be surrounded by like minded individuals!" Lindsey Marr, 22/10/18
