Beginner Weaving Workshop
Pre-pandemic I was offering one-to-one workshops in my studio in the UK.
I will not be offering workshops at this time.
How-to Information about hand weaving, spinning, natural dyes, nalbinding can be found by visiting my All Fiber Arts website.
I am also adding new How To videos on my YouTube channel.
I do not offer Zoom based workshops, as my weaving studio is an internet free zone.
Beginner Weaving Workshop>
This beginner weaving workshop is designed for those who are interested in learning to weave, but have never woven on a loom before. It is an introductory weaving course that will give you a chance to learn to weave on a few different styles of table looms. Before you delve into the more complex issues of how to warp the loom, how to calculate how much yarn you need, how to design or choose a pattern, I think it is best to try to weave something to see if you like the process of weaving and creating cloth, before you purchase a loom.
4 Shaft Table Loom
The beginner weaving workshop will be taught on a pre-threaded 4 shaft Ashford table loom.
The Ashford Table Loom has been pre-warped with multi-coloured cotton yarns and has been threaded to a variation of twill pattern designs. Using the table loom you will be able to weave a small tea towel and experiment with the use of colour and pattern in the project.

Rigid Heddle Loom
The rigid heddle loom is a 2 shaft loom that is suitable for weaving simple cloth such as wooly scarves or placemats using thicker yarns. You can also do free-form weaving with thick multi-coloured yarns creating a tapestry style of weave.
The Ashford rigid heddle loom has been pre-warped with rug yarn warp that is suitable for free-form tapesty weaving.
A selection of hand spun and commercial weft yarns are available for you to weave with to create your own table mat or free-form design.
