wool week day 7

today we had our last class in the shop, and it was a weaving workshop with Emma Blain of Aamos Designs.

using an embroidery hoop Emma had the ladies weaving in no time! They were making a small coaster or a potstand. It just goes to show you dont need a big loom and lots of setting up to be weaving. Emma was saying the same principle can be used to make mats and rugs using a hula hoop.

So that marks the end of Shetland Wool Week 2012.

It has been a brilliant week!
