What you'll do

Our workshops begins with a brief demonstration aimed to cover the basics of spinning, dyeing and weaving. I will show you the several traditional weaving techniques, by using an ancient loom typical of the Piedmont region in Italy. After this demonstration, I will guide you in mastering the basics of weaving on a comb-heddle loom (a perfect tool to learn the basics of weaving) and in creating your first canvas. If you choose to attend my workshop during the summer, you will have the opportunity to weave in my home-studio or in unusual places surrounded by nature such as: the panoramic viewpoint of the lake, the garden of the Odescalchi castle and other beautiful panoramic locations. If it's winter, we will sit around the beautiful fireplace in my home-studio. We will end our workshop with the wrapping of the fabric you made. Free snacks and homemade drinks will be available during the workshop. I very look forward to meeting you!

Hi, there!  My name is Roberta and I am an experienced weaver based in Bracciano, a nice picturesque town 19 miles northwest of Rome. I have decided to call my workshop "manifatturerranti", which literally means "wandering manufacturing" because I not only love weaving but travelling as well. My passion for weaving started around 10 years ago. I am deeply fascinated by the process that transforms a wool yarn into something functional and aesthetically pleasing and I look forward to sharing this with you. If you are interested on how a thread and a loom can create together a piece of fabric, come join me. You will make a beautiful handmade fabric to take home and maybe, who knows,  it will turn into a new life-long passion as it happened to me.

Where you'll be

Bracciano, con Il Castello Odescalchi (fortezza e palazzo rinascimentale a picco sul lago di Bracciano) è tra i borghi più suggestivi e belli d'Europa e a pochi minuti dalla riva del lago. Entrambi i luoghi sono stati straordinarie scenografie d'eccezione dai film di Orson Welles ai fratelli Taviani.
Dalla mia casa-atelier nel borgo, vista mozzafiato su lago e castello.

I've always wanted to try to weave it! In the traditional weaving workshop of Valeria in Rocca Calascio, I was welcomed by Roberta and Valeria who in a few hours confirmed to me that weaving is an art rich in history and creative nuances. I have completed the various stages of weaving but also experienced the beauty of weaving freely in front of a wonderful sunset. Also, I didn't expect to do the workshop with an Italian artist who lives in New York... A beautiful encounter. Fortunately I often go to Rome... See you in Trastevere! Ho sempre desiderato di provare a tessere! Nel tradizionale laboratorio di tessitura di Valeria a Rocca Calascio, sono stata accolta da Roberta e Valeria che in poche ore mi hanno confermato che la tessitura è un'arte ricca di storia e sfumature creative. Ho compiuto le varie fasi della tessitura ma anche vissuto la bellezza di tessere liberamente davanti un tramonto meraviglioso. Inoltre, non mi aspettavo di fare il laboratorio con una artista italiana che vive a New York... Un bellissimo incontro. Fortunatamente vado spesso a Roma... Ci vediamo a Trastevere! #weavingexperience
