occasional weaving workshops


Next 5 day sash – band – trim - introductory weaving workshop is on 19th – 23rd September 2016

This is the week following the North East Open Studio Week.

Using studio looms, this introductory 5 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 width of fabric created, 4 inches/10 cm or so wide, can be used as trim, incorporated into fashion items and accessories, worn as mini scarves, belts or chunky ties. In the process participants explore weaving techniques and have access to a variety of yarns.

If you prefer to bring your own loom, please get in touch.

Fee: £350 for the 5 day block includes all sample weaving material and use of equipment. Prior booking essential. Refreshments will be offered through the day. Participants bring own lunch.

Times: 10.00 am- 16.00pm.
