ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Would you like to know how to work with a rectangular loom? And learn about yarn types and warp preparations? Our beginners weaving workshop is ideal for absolute beginners or those wanting to refresh their skills. With Claire Gelder, Founder and Designer at Wool Couture you’ll learn all the basics: how to warp your loom, work with the weft, change colours, add rya knots, work with roving and mount your weaving. By the end of the session you'll have created your very own woven wallhanging.You will come away with a beautiful sampler plus the skills to carry on weaving. This is a day to forget the stresses of daily life, to return to the skills we used to value more, and to have a lot of fun.

Make something amazing with your own hands! Dream Big and Make Great Things!
