In this fun and hands on 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.

You will take home your own handcrafted weaving kit, your own woven piece and an instruction sheet with tips and tricks.

If you are unable to attend a workshop but would still like to learn to weave our handcrafted weaving kits are available for purchase separately in our shop.

A great intro into hand weaving by a knowledgeable teacher. Got to keep the loom, and learned a number of techniques.
