Absolute Beginners Weaving

Ref: AL102

Come along for an easy workshop, learning some of the basics of weave. This course is a taster for anyone who thinks they may be interested in making their own cloth. It is a stand-alone session and therefore suitable for absolute beginners and those with only a little experience.

On the first day you will learn to make a warp and put it onto the loom. On the second day you will finish warping up and begin to weave. You will be free to choose colours from the yarn store and try your hand at different patterns. If you would like to bring some inspiration material (photograph, picture, etc.) please do so. We will work with you to create a colour palette for your weaving.

We will be in the studio in Yell where there is plenty of inspiration and lots to see. You are welcome to stay after the workshop to read books or look at the textiles collection. An additional £5 is payable to the tutor for materials.
