Absolute Beginners Weaving

Ref: 2436

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.You will learn to make a warp, put it onto the loom and begin to weave. You will be using table looms, and by the end of the class will have a short length of narrow cloth of your own to wash at home and use in a project.

This is a stand-alone session and therefore suitable for absolute beginners and those with a little experience. We will be in the studio in Yell where there is lots to see and plenty of material to inspire you. You are welcome to stay after the workshop to read books or look at the textiles collection. There are only five places available, so please book early.

There is an additional charge of £5 for materials, payable to the tutor.
