6 hour workshop
This one-day beginners' weaving class is designed to be fun, and will allow you the freedom to experiment whilst create beautiful cloth without any previous weaving experience.
Taught in small groups of four or less and using easy-to-operate equipment, students will get a feel for what can be achieved using a multi-shaft loom, try out different patterns, and create a piece of cloth to take away with you.
You will be taught how to prepare the yarns you want to use (and there are lots to choose from!), and how to make different patterns on your loom (like herringbone, or waffle weave), and at the end of the day you may even have woven enough cloth to go away and fashion into a scarf, a table runner, or a cushion.
