Illae Woven Studio

Illae woven studio is new, small woven textiles design studio based in Hackney Wick.

Juliet and Caroline specialise in textiles design and development for the industry, but Juliet started running hand-weaving courses in London when she noticed there was a real renaissance in textiles happening, but with very little knowledge of weaving.

In their studio, they have one large 1950s mechanical floor loom, three smaller arm looms, and the beginners rigid heddle looms, that you'll be taught on!

With over 8 years of weaving experience, Juliet will pass on tips and tricks to help you understand and weave your own beautiful piece of cloth.

Juliet is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher! I loved that the class was only two people, because this lets the class be very focused. The class is in a beautiful studio, surrounded by looms and yarns. I learned so much in two days, and I want to keep weaving now! I will definitely do another class here, and I highly recommend it.

The course was brilliant; there was only two of us so we had help at every moment. Everything was explained carefully and patiently. Loads of helpful information sheets were provided to take away. The teacher was very knowledgeable in all areas. It was a lovely little space to work in and the hospitality of cakes and drinks was also very nicely considered. I would highly recommend this course, I could definitely go away and set up a learn and continue weaving on my own after having done it.

HI really enjoyed this workshop. It was a joy to get to know Juliet who runs Illae with her business partner. I found the intimate and relaxed atmosphere really conducive to learning the techniques. Juliet was a competent & skilful tutor, careful to study our individual needs and supportive throughout. She prepared context and history for us to have a glance through and offered to send us that info in a digitised version via email. Mostly I found this a fun and relaxed atmosphere! I came away with a beautiful piece of cloth that I am so proud of, as well as a really thorough intro to a new skill I hope I can study more. This is a class suitable for all ages (kids too), open, friendly and not pretentious. If you want to learn a bit more about textiles, crafts, the industry or just have a play on a loom with some mad yarns and amazing fibres - go for it!

I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning to weave. Juliet is clearly a talented and passionate weaver and has taken a lot of care in structuring the class to cover all aspects of the process and really impart her passion and some of her skills on her students. Excellent!

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, learning all about the history, the different types of looms and yarms and best of all actually trying different weaving techniques. Juliet is a brilliant teacher and I had a fantastic day and highly recommend this workshop. Thank you Juliet :-)

Best class I've taken in London. Very informative, fun, and useful - you leave with the confidence and skills to continue with your weaving practice. Juliet is truly wonderful, and her passion for weaving is contagious. I highly, highly recommend Colour and Weave - you won't be disappointed!
