Loom Woven Textiles Course - Spring/Summer 2020 An introduction to Pattern Weaving with Cotton


The Pattern weaving course will be a great introduction to pattern weaving. It can be taken over 2-4 classes or 2hr blocks.

The weaving courses we offer are suitable for beginners to weaving and offer 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. 

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 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 for one person.

All materials, Course pack, equipment, and refreshments are included in the price.
