Learn how to weave with a portable loom



3 hours Class size 2 to 10

label $220 - $240 ($240 per guest when you book for 2 guests, $220 for 3+ guests. $100 per class surcharge applies for private classes)

In this fun and hands-on workshop in Melbourne, 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 a 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 workshop, 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.

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