Weaving Our Lands
To bring some warmth and cheer this Autumn, we are inviting Bootle Residents to connect to Linacre’s ancestral heritage, land practices, and sustainable textile futures through weaving.
From weaving rituals to mark out our land, to local heritage, warp-looms and recycled cloth; join weavers Raisa Kabir and Kirsty Leadbetter from Liverpool Weaving Company to learn new skills, develop knowledge and connect with Linacre’s history and old practices. Each session will take place against the backdrop of Linacre Mission’s Albert Hall — a heritage space which has recently been lovely restored.
All Bootle locals are welcome to our events, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you would like to come, as places are limited. You can book onto each of the sessions separately.
Bootle Heritage Weaving
Saturday 20th November & Friday 26th November | 2:00-5:00pm [3 hours]
Over two sessions, Kirsty will teach you how to use a frame loom to create your very own swatches of “Heritage Bootle Tweed”, responding to the Linacre Mission’s heritage and its beautiful colours, patterns and designs
Time-Warp: Warp-weighted loom weaving
Saturday 27th November | 2:00-4:30pm [2.5 hours]
You are invited to join us in making a collective sustainable artwork from recycled cloth, using an ancient-style warp loom, weaving together past and future stories.
We greatly encourage all attendees to wear masks and get a covid test before coming to our events, to keep everyone in our community safe and well. Masks & hand sanitiser will be available, and where possible, sessions will be held outside. Windows will be open and the space well ventilated. Sign in/ track and trace is required on entry to ensure we can contact attendees. We kindly ask everyone to be respectful of personal space and individual needs.
Commoning, Organising & Futuring.
Building on the learning and themes of flax’s project, we hosted a series of free, in person gatherings and online sharing that create space for reflection and organising with the community. The sessions allowed us to collectively explore the environment, land and future projects that might emerge, which can evolve and be developed together.
