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 be plenty of time to make a decent length of fabric. Perfect for a scarf or small garment.

Get weaving already!

Really fun and relaxing. Nice to have 2 teachers on hand. Nice relaxed vibe, you can come and go as you please (I was on 5 hours) and the studios are nice with good cafe for lunch in the sun. Plan to return for 2 hour session to do some person Xmas presents. Only regret is wish I had been braver earlier on in my session rather than being so cautious.

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!) The Telegraph and is the author of Weave This (Hardie Grant 2018). The London Loom was also awarded Mollie Makes Best Craft Workshops of 2019.

We want to share the good that we feel from learning new skills and making beautiful, tactile things. Please get in touch if you have any questions or ideas for textile experiments.
