In this fun live streaming class, you will learn to weave with a portable and simple loom with materials that you may already have on hand.

We will cover everything from a brief explanation on the concept of weaving, to the different types of weaving equipment and the terminologies used.

You will learn how to dress the loom (putting warp on a frame loom), how to identify what yarn is appropriate for warp and weft, and how to use various techniques to create textures, patterns and colours.

During the class, you'll have the chance to weave with a variety of material such as yarn, fabric and fibres and will use a finishing technique for your woven piece so that you can take it off the loom.

Yarn bundles are available to purchase as an add on to your kit. Yarn bundles contain 100g of yarns recycled from other projects making them perfect for small weaving projects.

The class was a fun way to learn a new skill and covered a lot of techniques. The kit and yarn are a good set too. The teacher showed what she was doing from different angles too.

I think I’ve found a new hobby loved the class was explained in very simple terms

I really enjoyed the class, Nichola explained everything really well. Even on Zoom it all made sense and with the use of the booklet (in the kit) it has given me something to refer too.

Kate Mansell Sep 2021


I loved this class, instructions were easy to follow on the day. Teacher was friendly and available to answer questions as we followed along. Cameras set up to see teacher speaking and a second following the crafting from a birds eye view. Kit arrived in the post, with all the tools I needed and some instructions to keep me going after the class. I will definitely be looking for more classes to attend.

What a great way to spend a Saturday. Nichola is creative, helpful and passionate about her craft. The instructions are easy to follow and I am enjoying creating my weave and looking forward to creating more weaves. Thank you.

Bridget Allison Sep 2021


The instructions were really clear, but I did feel a bit rushed. When the teacher said they normally do the class over 3hrs, it makes more sense. I felt like overall the class was more of a demonstration and less or a workshop due to the time constraints. I have some experience with crochet, macrame and knots and found the class easy to understand. I am not sure absolute beginners would grasp all the techniques in the limited time. If I had to do this again I would choose a 3hr class, even if it was over Zoom. Or the class could be split into two 1.5hr sessions.

The quality of the materials and the customer service is great. The instructor was very knowledgeable and gave clear instructions.

Thank you!

Really loved the weaving class! The teacher was great - really knowledgeable and she went at the right speed while managing to cover a lot of different techniques and tips. I really liked the pack I was sent, I will be using the small loom again and I like that it included a bunch of different types of wool and materials. I would recommend this class and can't wait to go to some in person classes soon!

I enjoyed this class. Thanks, Nichola. The instructions were clear and shown well during the live streaming so I could follow what you ere doing.

totally enjoyed the class esp. for a beginner like me. Nichola explained and showed the different techniques step by step for us to try and what things to consider when weaving. loved the video too as I watched it a few times to get the method right. Loved the frame loom that comes in the craft box - perfect size for a beginner. Such a joy to open the box - wrapped with care.

Thoroughly enjoyed this class
Didn't realise how much I'd love weaving. Nicola was very patient and explained how to weave so that novices could understand.

Claire Rowsell May 2020


Loved it, easy to follow, although a bit tricky at points. I got it as a present for mothers day and in turn for my mum for her mothers day. My mum is now obsessed, haha

Damien Hodgkinson May 2020


It was a fantastic session and Nicola was an excellent instructor with a great multi-camera set up to show us different views of her weaving steps. Mini loom kit was great to get started and will be handy for small projects. The 1.5 hrs went very quickly and it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.

Parull Isharani May 2020


Was very informative and hoping to do a detailed one soon.

Johanna Hall May 2020


Really enjoyed the class, it was great fun and very well presented. Would have liked a little more time to absorb different weaving techniques and ways of starting and finishing new yarns. Some demonstrations would be easier to follow if magnified during presentation. If was a great Mother's Day gift, thank you for making it happen.
Hoped to have something worthwhile to show you soon,
Best wishes Marguerite

All questions verbally answered and steps re shown to ensure questions were answered and understood which was great. I started late as I was told the wrong start time by my children lol who organised for me to join the tutorial but I was able to quickly catch up. Thank you enjoy the class

What a fantastic class! Nichola’s pace, style and teaching techniques were spot on for me and the craft box was such a nice treat for remote learning. Would highly recommend.

Nadine Louis May 2020


Nichola was great, class was perhaps a little fast at times but that may have been because I got in the zone

Had a great time and learnt lots.
