Paper Weaving with Molly Bland

A paper-weaving workshop, perfect for the family!


Anni Albers combined the ancient craft of hand-weaving with the language of modern art. A student at the radical Bauhaus School of Art in the 1920s, she made waves in the world of art and design.

During this drop-in, family friendly workshop, have a go at making your own paper weaving, inspired by Albers’ work and artist Molly Bland’s bold and colourful practice.



Molly Bland is a graphic artist and creative facilitator based by the sea in sunny Morecambe, Lancashire. She works with collage and digital design to create playful responses to a wide range of briefs in graphic design, illustration, mural painting, textile design and many other disciplines. Since studying Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts and Sculpture with Printmaking at L’Accademia Di Brera in Milan, she has created works for LF Markey, You Must Create LDN, More Music, Deco Publique, Good Practice LDN, Far Afield, Solar MTP, British Red Cross, Farm Yard Ales, Harper Collins and lots more.
