Loom Woven Textiles Course - Spring/Summer 2019 An introduction to Pattern Weaving with Cotton
This 4 week evening course will be a great introduction to pattern weaving...
Both Modern Ashford Rigid Heddle and 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 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 take place from 6.30 - 9.00pm on a Thursday evening for small groups of 4-6 people only, so early booking is recommended.
All materials, equipment, and refreshments are included in the course price.
