We had a great time weaving with Charlene in Feb 2022. To find out more about what’s coming up next in the Give it a Go series click here.
Come and join textile artist Charlene Sandy for an afternoon of weaving.
Learn the basics of weaving using different yarns in various colours and textures.
If you get the bug she can even teach you how to weave shapes. You will also be shown how to finish off the piece so that you can take it home and hang on your wall. Materials will be provided on the day.
Suitable for from age 8+ but children must be accompanied by an adult.
Location: Crawley Museum, The Tree, 103 High Street, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 1DD
Date: Sat 26th February
Time: 2pm – 4pm
It’s completely free to attend and you can drop in for 10 mins or stay for the whole two hours. Places are limited so to confirm your space book here. If the event is showing to be sold out when you try and book it’s always worth dropping by on the day as we can usually fit people in.
Charlene has gained a degree in Textile design, which saw her develop her need for using her hands to create beautiful things. But after her studies she was transported into the world of fashion having worked with some of the top stylists in the industry. This has seen her work on many fashion shoots as a stylist and an assistant working on still photographic shoots as well as TV commercials, and short films.
With this not being enough for Charlene she has now gone back to her textile roots and is now facilitating Art and Craft workshops in and around London, working with children and adults. As Charlene is always attending workshops herself to develop her knowledge of crafts this then lends itself to her passing on her knowledge to others, thus keeping up traditions old and new.
