Coastal Landscapes in Weave with Sue Rowland

Sue Rowland, a local textile artist, will work with you to create beautiful, woven landscapes based on the countryside around Boston, possibly with a coastal theme with reference to Boston’s maritime history as a major port and its links to wool and sheep.

During the workshops you will use different techniques and yarns (including local Lincolnshire long wool), looking at colour and texture to achieve a tactile piece of work on a card loom. Bring along your own picture of a favourite local coastal scene to work from, or use the provided photos as a starting point. You can include found coastal objects like shells and small pieces of driftwood if you wish.

Weaving is suitable for everyone so come along and get creative!
