Weaving Class with a Mini Loom

How to weave on a mini loom



2 hours 1 to 20 label $75


Weaving is a method of textile production consisting of two distinct sets of yarn – the warp and the weft – which are interlocked to form a stable piece of fabric or cloth. Tapestry is a form of woven textile art traditionally made on a vertical loom and is made for creative or aesthetic display purposes.

This workshop will introduce you to the basic techniques of weaving on small tapestry looms. You will be shown various weaving stitches in order to create your own tapestry creations. So come and unwind, and spend an evening with us mastering this ancient craft.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • All materials will be provided to create your own wall hanging, plus you’ll get to take home a mini loom from Loom and Spindle and all the yarn needed to complete your project after the workshop.

  • PDF instruction booklet to download at home.

What to bring

  • All materials will be provided, but if you want to add some extra personal touches to your wall hanging, feel free to bring along: beads, ribbons, scrap yarns, or a small stick from your favourite tree (approx 20-30cm)

  • Imagery of any wall hangings you would like to mimic

She honed her knitting skills and gained more knowledge of traditional fibre crafts while working at a historical site in Canada. Developing as an artist she focuses on ethical and sustainable material, sourced from Australian producers. Her fibre and weaving work is constantly growing and she is currently learning to spin natural fibres.

Teacher was very helpful. Large range of materials to choose from. Was overwhelmed at how supportive and inclusive teacher n other ladies were with my 10 year old grandson. He loves to weave. He said the class was awesome, he learned new techniques and wants me to take him again. I felt the course was a bit costly.

Loved this class! Bec was so lovely and helpful and the venue was very nice. Materials provided were good quality and I think this class was good value for money. I re-learnt how to weave which is something I loved as a child and am looking forward to continuing.

The class was really relaxed and fun. Bec provided a great atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable. It would have been great to learn a few more advanced techniques.
