Handweaving with Moroccan wool
 

During this weaving workshop, artist Rosa Smits teaches you the basic technique of weaving on a loom. We work with wool from Morocco and you learn how to distinguish it from other textile materials.

You also learn to combine different colors and the so-called 'Berber Button' is discussed, with which weavers in Morocco have been knotting incredibly soft carpets for centuries. Weaving is for everyone, young and old. Afterwards you will take your own beautiful weaving work home with you.

There is room for max. 15 people; full is full! For questions you can email to activities@cobra-museum.nl
