FROM WOOL TO FABRIC
An interactive Weaving Workshop exposition based on weaving with a loom.
Archaeological, traditional, upright or semi-automatic Viļumsons’ looms are used by experienced weavers and master craftswomen. Visitors are welcome to participate in the weaving process to find out how fabrics are made and learn some simple weaving techniques.
During the visit, you will learn about the fabric-making process from start to finish: choosing materials, colours and designs, warping the loom, weaving, removing the fabric from the loom and processing the fabric.
It is a chance to get to know weaving traditions and try your own hand at the loom to learn a weaving technique or two.
