Daytime

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.

About your host, Alan Oliver Handwoven Rugs & Textiles

Alan is a weaver, specialising in the production of hand-dyed and hand-woven rugs, all made in my Central London Studio.

Alan's work has been featured in Elle Decoration and the London Evening Standard, and he has pieces displayed at major UK galleries, including the Barbican and the Ruthin Craft Centre.

When Alan is not weaving rugs, he spends his time teaching. The classes he teaches vary from taster and beginners' classes - for people with little or no experience, to lessons in rug weaving for students who already have a basic understanding of weaving.

All of Alan's classes are taught at his studio, close to Waterloo station.
