Weaving on Ancient Looms - 27th September 2020
Find out how weaving developed from hand- manipulated techniques in early prehistory, to methods requiring a loom by the Bronze and Iron ages.
Explore the principles of weaving by assembling and using a backstrap loom (which you can then take home with you), and by helping set up and use a warp weighted loom including tablet woven starting borders.
This workshop is led by experimental archaeologists and historical crafts people Sally Pointer and Gareth Riseborough.
