This is a course (6 x 2 hrs)  in which you will work on a XXL “hand” loom. In this class you will learn to work on this loom, while creating your own tapestry! This tapestry can really be used on the floor, but is also nice as an art piece on the wall.
All materials are included in this course. The materials we use are natural. The warp is set up with organic cotton and linen and you can use (local) wool while weaving as well. It is a creative course in which you can learn different stitches and combine different colors and textures to create a truly personal item. In the first class you will create your own loom with basic materials and you will create a composition for your work. After the course you can take your own loom home as well.
















About Rosa
(in the picture doing a weaving project in Marocco)
Rosa Smits is a textile artist/designer who graduated from the textile department of Gerrit Rietveld Academie. She also has a background in fashion and she gets excited when different fields like textile, performance, philosophy and art overlap. She loves to travel and to learn about textile traditions and stories from different cultures. Weaving is her main medium to explore, and often she uses it during travels to connect to a place, the materials they have to offer and the people. Rosa is now a freelance artist/designer and she gives weaving and natural dyeing lessons on a regular basis at de Steek.
