This new 6 week evening course will be a great introduction to pattern weaving...
Both Modern Rigid Heddle and traditional 4 shaft looms will be set up with fine 100% cotton yarns ready for you to experiment on with a range of woven patterns, which will be included in your course pack.
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.
Classes take place from 7.00 - 9.00pm on a Thursday evening for small groups of 6-8 people only, so early booking is recommended. If you are unable to attend for all 6 weeks of the course, but would still like to book a place, alternative time slots can be arranged for you to attend the studio by prior agreement.
All materials, equipment, and refreshments are included in the course price.
