Weaving Project


Every Thursday throughout 2018

Every Thursday 2.00pm – 4.00pm until December 2018

Each week we host a drop-in session where we make woven mats from recycled materials. We use bespoke looms to learn simple weaving skills as a group. The hand-made woven mats will be used during family activities and by our museum users to make the shared spaces more comfortable and welcoming. This session is open to new-comers and expert in art and craft alike, and takes place in a relaxed and friendly environment.

This workshop draws on techniques and concepts found in pieces within the Middlesbrough Collection. It is part of a project with Glasgow-based artist Katie Schwab, whose work looks at the history of art and craft. Last year, Katie consulted on our learning programme with our team and museum users and making a number of works for our museum’s spaces and the Middlesbrough Collection.
