Absolute beginners hand-woven scarf - 2 days
Tue, 29 Aug 2017, 10:00 – Wed, 30 Aug 2017, 16:00 BST
Come and join us for a relaxing and therapeutic two day weaving workshop. Each day will start at 10am (please arrive after 09:45am) and finish at 4pm. Enjoy using soft chunky wools in the beautiful setting of Wistow to not only hand-weave your own scarf but learn how to set up the loom as well. This is the perfect introduction to weaving for absolute beginners and those wanting to have a go at using the delightful folding knitters looms. The knitters’ looms are quick to set-up and easy to use.
Over the two days Emily will take you through every step of the set-up process. You will then be able to experiment with weaving different yarns to create your very own bespoke scarf. The scarf can then be finished off with a choice of tassels and you will be able to take you scarf home straight away.
All materials and equipment are included. You only need to bring yourself and some glasses for close-up work if you need them! Feel free to bring a little notepad and pen if you would like to make notes.
“Really enjoyed the whole course. A nice mix of people & the chance to try a new craft with an end product to take home.”
There is free parking and free tea and coffee throughout the workshop. We really recommend the onsite cafe for your lunch. It is truly delicious. Do feel free however to bring a pack lunch. More venue information can be found on the Wistow gallery website via the link opposite.
