Whether you are a complete novice with no prior experience or a weaver looking to further knowledge and skills we can provide something for you.
The general structure for our courses is set out below.
Half day introduction to weaving - £60 in group
This four hour workshop is the ideal way to start if you have never woven before or want a refresher course of the basics. Looms will already be threaded up with a lovely soft lambswool giving you the chance to experiment with different weave patterns and lots of different warp yarns. We will also look at the process of getting the loom ready to weave. Any cloth you weave is yours to take away at the end of the session.
Full day - £130 one on one/£95 in group
This is similar to a half day for complete novices. The set up of the loom is explained in more detail and use of different yarns is discussed. You get to do more weaving and have a sample of your weaving to take away.
If you have previous experience and book a one on one day course we cater the day to your needs, so if there is a specific area or process you want to learn about then that is what we'll focus on.
Two days - £250 one on one
This looks more at setting up the loom, we start right from scratch so the first day is spent making a warp and dressing the loom, with the second day focusing on weaving. Again you get to take away the fabrics you weave. If you own your own loom and would like to set up using your own this can arranged too.
For weavers with prior experience we discuss exactly what you want to achieve.
We can also provide lovely accommodation for all courses, drop us an email or give us a call for more information.
