WORKSHOP + KIT

If you buy the kit you must order at least 1 week before the workshop date (UK) to allow for adequate delivery time. Deliveries to the rest of the world will take much longer and will incur added shipping charges. 


Heady weaving has been around for a while but has only made an impact in the wider wire weaving community in recent years. It is an incredibly beautiful style of wire weaving and the objective is to create designs that display 'flow' and 'life'.

This is an online, 4 hour intermediate/advanced wire weaving workshop. Your tutor, Nadja will show you everything you need to know to start your journey into a fascinating wire weaving style called 'Heady' weaving.
