The Loom Room
Design Team, IF: Industrial Fashion
“The Loom Room is a meeting place for people who have an interest and passion for craft, particularly textiles. We participate in many local events, such as at the Laverton Market, the Newport Library Opening and the inaugural Art & Industry Festival, to promote what we do and to ensure people feel welcome to join us.”
The Loom Room has a school term-based program where people get together for 3 hours on Wednesday mornings to exchange skills, learn new crafts, participate in workshops and, most importantly, get together socially. There are always experts as well as new beginners participating in weaving, recycling and upcycling fabric; natural dyeing, sewing, spinning, felting, bag making, knitting and much more. This exchange of ideas, knowledge and advice is pivotal to the Loom Room. On most weeks there are now over 40 people attending, of all ages and all interests.
