What you will do

Single session

Never woven before? No problem!

Let’s get you measuring warp and threading up the loom like a pro.

Learn how to make your own fabric entirely from scratch. You will start by planning your warp, stripes? rainbow? All neon pink? (oh, that’s just us) It’s up to you – this is your chance to experiment with colours and make a cloth that is entirely your own. You’ll learn to use a warping frame, how to thread your warp onto the loom ready for weaving and then you’ll get the rest of the day to weave onto your own warp using our huge selection of yarns.

Students on this workshop will be weaving a scarf from scratch, on average your scarf will measure up at 1.5 metres long which is long enough to keep your neck nice and snug. We have a massive range of yarns in the studio so there will definitely be something that works for you depending on any preferences you have. Feel free to bring in any odds and ends of yarn you have at home too! Any ribbons or your Nan's leftover stash that you don't know what to do with - using up unmeasurable yarns is what freestyle weaving is all about. Let's make a beautiful thing that you'll love and use.

Thinking of buying your own loom? This class would be ideal for you.

About your host, The London Loom

The London Loom is an award winning weaving studio in Hackney in East London. Founded to create an open, creative space for people who love making things with their hands, we have proudly taught over 2000 people how to weave since opening our first studio in 2017.

At The London Loom we want to encourage people to indulge in creating for pure satisfaction and fun. We hold community workshops and smaller classes in our studio where we welcome adults and children of any ability and background.

Francesca has been teaching weaving and other textile crafts since 2015 and has taught weaving workshops for Tate Modern, Southbank Centre, Scouts, Hackney Arc and the Royal Society of Sculptors and has appeared in (amongst others) Mollie Makes, Stylist, PomPom Quarterly, Time Out (on the front cover!)
