The weaving courses we offer are suitable for both beginners to weaving and those with some previous experience of this fascinating and absorbing traditional craft. This course offers a more structured approach to learning, patterns are provided and we will work in a methodical way through a library of designs in order to gain a good understanding of colour weave structures.
Either Modern Ashford Rigid Heddle or traditional 4 shaft Harris looms will be set up with fine cotton or wool yarns ready for you to experiment on with a range of woven sampler patterns.
Exploring a variety of different loom threading orders, you can weave Twill, Tabby, Basket and houndstooth, and make a range of sample fabrics in checks, stripes and diamond patterns.
This course will also cover all the basics of reading a pattern draft and the principles of creating a balanced cloth.
During the course you can choose to create a collection of sample cloth in traditional colour patterns, or design & create your own woven cloth for a project of your choice.
Classes can take place, on request at a time and date convenient to you...Daytimes, evenings and weekends are available to book.
The weaving course is suitable for groups of 2 or more people - or the private tuition rate will apply if you would like to book a bespoke course for one person.
All materials, Course pack, equipment, and refreshments are included in the price.
