Create DIY yarn with discarded textiles, learn weaving techniques and make your own piece of art with Rachel Wood of Wunder Weave.

Educating yourself about fashion waste and landfill doesn’t need to be dry.

Hosted by fibre artist and weaving teacher Rachel Wood of Wunder Weave, the Scrap-estry Workshop will teach you how to create your own ‘scrap-estry’ – or woven wall hangings – using recycled textiles. Wood will guide you through the process of deconstructing old clothing and textiles to create yarn, as well as the essentials of tapestry weaving, including how to prepare a loom and a range of different weaving techniques.

Scrap-estry Workshop is part of Beta by Sth Bnk's experimental event series designed to raise eco-consciousness by repurposing fashion waste. The workshop will be held at Future From Waste Lab at Hanover House, which has recently been transformed and animated with the work of South Sudanese artist Atong Atem.

Class sizes will be limited to 15 people, and all materials are included in the ticket price.
