This creative weaving workshop allows participants to gain a basic understanding of the principles of hand-weaving, whilst creating their own unique woven artwork or fabric.

Under Pamela’s guidance you will learn how to set up a frame loom and to weave a variety of basic weave structures, such as plain weave and twill, as well as some decorative tapestry techniques including rya knots and soumak stitch. You will have access to a wide variety of yarns to enable you to experiment with texture and colour blending.

Small group of 5 people maximum, to allow plenty of one-one tuition. Suitable for complete beginners, or those relatively new to weaving.

Workshops take place on a Wednesday and Saturday on a choice of scheduled dates. Alternatively, if you are a family or group of friends (min 3 people) and have a specific date in mind this can be arranged at no additional cost – please contact Pamela directly.­­

 

THE WORKSHOP INCLUDES:

  • 4.5 hours of weaving demonstrations and guided | one-one tuition.
  • Use of the looms and tools.
  • Access to an inspirational library of yarns from merino wool to fancy Italian and wool/silk fibres.
  • Workshop technical guide.
  • Refreshments

You will have the option to purchase your weaving loom kit at a special rate at the end of the workshop or as a combined purchase when you book the workshop. Please see ‘select date’ to view options in the dropdown.

 

WHAT TO BRING 

All materials are provided, however I do strongly encourage you to bring any discarded old clothing / textiles which can be cut and woven into your piece or yarn oddments that would otherwise go to waste.
