About this event


		Introduction to Weaving image

An introduction into hand weaving.

This workshop is a perfect place to start if you’re a weaving novice or want a refresher course of the basics.

Kirsty will demonstrate thread by thread how to set up your frame loom and how to accomplish different woven techniques. You will then be able to try these patterns out for yourself, weaving with a variety of different textural and colourful yarns to create a beautiful piece of handwoven cloth, to turn into a small wall hanging, a table piece for your home, or just keep as a fabulous bit of weaving!

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this. Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A register will be taken at the workshop, it isn't necessary to print your ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event.

Refunds will be offered in the event of the event being cancelled, alternative dates will be offered if appropriate.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop. After this date we can only offer a refund if your space is able to be filled.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

I have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been told to self isolate after being in contact with someone with COVID-19 can I get a refund?

We can refund your ticket or transfer your ticket to a future class/workshop if you let us know 7 or more days prior to the class or workshop.

We can refund your ticket up to 5 days before the event if you can provide evidence of a positive test result or instructions to self isolate if we manage to re-sell the ticket. We will do our best to do so, but cannot guarantee a refund.

We cannot refund your ticket in the 3 days prior to the event. You are welcome to pass your ticket on to a friend or family member but please let us know who the new ticket holder is in advance.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

Do I need to self isolate if someone who was in the same class tests positive for COVID-19?

No. Unless you have had close contact.

According to the government guidelines you only need to self isolate if you have come into “close contact” with someone. The environment we provide is covid secure, meaning that if you follow the rules you will not come into close contact with another participant.

Close contact, as defined by the guidance, is when:

- You had face-to-face contact with someone, within one meter, including:

- Being coughed on

- Having skin-to-skin physical contact, or

- Been within one metre for one minute or more

Or, you were within 2 meters of someone for 15 minutes or more.

Wearing PPE does not mitigate the above factors.

Someone being behind a screen does not count as close contact.

If someone tests positive they must notify NHS Track and Trace, which will inform other people. Additionally we ask that anyone who tests positive lets us know, so we can keep other people well informed.

The final decision about self-isolating must come from you, and given all the information you will need to make an informed decision yourself.
