What you will do

Single session

Our freestyle weaving class will get even the most inexperienced crafter making their own cloth within minutes of walking through our doors.

We will take you through the process of preparing your yarn and how to use various fibres and techniques to get you started and then our massive stash of over 400 yarns is yours to enjoy.

We use a simple two pedal floor loom that is perfect for both children from the age of 6 and adults to engage with this traditional craft and learn to make something new and unique with your own two hands. Once you have the basics down, you will be able to pick and choose your textures and colours at your own pace and taste.

Our 2 hour slot is plenty of time to make enough fabric for a wall hanging or small accessory like a purse or clutch bag. The 5 hour slot will give you enough time to make a decent length of fabric. Perfect for a scarf or small garment.

Get weaving already!

This is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of weaving! Francesca is delightful - a very good teacher. I was able to use anything in the store to create a piece to take home. Such a fun introduction to a beautiful art!

So much fun! Francesca was hilarious, informative and has superb people skills - she can handle any ability or personality. A visit from Alan the dog was also a highlight at the end of the class. Highly recommended!!
