Weaving Workshops

March 6, 2024

On Monday 4th March, Year 8 enjoyed not one, but two art workshops, focused on developing their weaving skills. Withington welcomed textile artist Sally Craig and sculptor Caroline Gregson for these workshops. The Year was divided into two and each pupil took part in the textile and willow classes either side of lunch.

The specialists both introduced various techniques from basic skills to more advanced techniques, and with enthusiasm and creativity, Year 8 implemented these practices to craft their own unique pieces. The sessions were a fantastic opportunity for pupils to work with natural materials and explore different art forms.
