Spend a day learning to weave on one of our looms!
About this Event

This workshop is perfect for those who would like to explore weaving in a fun workshop and produce an outcome within the day. You will have the freedom to weave your own small piece of fabric, it could be for the front of a cushion cover, a folded purse, placemats or a table runner to name just a few ideas, the choice is yours. These days are aimed at those who are keen to have a go but maybe don’t want to learn too much technical information (yet!) They are a fun introduction to the basics of weaving on a loom whilst also producing your own unique piece of work, selecting from a range of yarns to create your own bespoke design. The looms will be set up ready, meaning you get to enjoy a whole day just weaving. Please note that there won’t be time within the workshop to sew up your weaving into a final product. We will be concentrating on the weaving within the workshop.

You will be in a small class, maximum 6 participants, giving plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive 1 to 1 support throughout the workshop as well as watching group demonstrations.

Tea, coffee & cake will be provided.
