Event description

Description

Aimed at complete beginners, this relaxed session is an introduction to the world of weaving. Working with simple table-top frame looms you’ll learn how to

  • Set up warp threads

  • Use shuttles and needles to make a weft

  • Create a simple weave and learn how to remove it from the frame

  • Try out more advance stitches including as Rya Knots, Soumak, Looping and Fringing

During the workshop you’ll make a weaving sampler to take home and display as a wall hanging or mat.

There will be a range of wools and textiles available for you to use, but you can bring along some your own materials if you would like to include them. Weaving is a great way to use up wool left over from knitting and crochet projects. Looms are provided and will be available for sale at the end of the course for under £20 if you get the weaving bug!

The fee includes all materials and refreshments, but please bring a packed lunch (or you can use one of the nearby cafes in Ramsbottom).
