learn to weave – workshops

weaveNext 4 day weaving workshop is 24 – 27th July 018:

Using studio looms, this 4 day class is suitable for beginners and for weavers wishing to refresh their skills. Participants will learn to weave on a table top shaft loom from start to finish and will choose yarns, set up a loom and then weave their own fabric to take away. The fabric created can be incorporated into fashion items and accessories. In the process participants explore weaving techniques and have access to a variety of yarns. The workshop is tailored to each student.

More experienced weavers can treat this as a weaving retreat. Enjoy four days weaving under guidance using their own or a studio loom and yarn. Discuss and choose a study topic or project before you come, or start fresh in the studio. In addition to 8 shaft table looms, an 8 shaft Louet David treadle loom and a 16 shaft Louet Megado compudobby are on offer. Please get in touch to check availability of these, or if you prefer to bring your own loom.

Fee: £350 for the 4 day block includes all sample weaving material and use of equipment. There is a small surcharge for use of the treadle and compudobby looms. Prior booking essential. Refreshments will be offered through the day. Participants bring own lunch.

Early bird booking fee. The fee for this workshop if booked by 28th February 2018 is discounted by 10% to £315, (excluding any treadle / dobby loom surcharge).
