Learn to weave and create your own fabric in just one afternoon!

Zu diesem Event

Weaving is an exciting and versatile craft, but it can be difficult to know how to get started. In this 4 hour workshop with weaver Emma Wood, you can take the first steps towards building up your knowledge and confidence as a weaver.

Over the course of the workshop, you'll have the chance to design and weave your own fabric samples on an 8-shaft loom, whilst also understanding the principles of shaft weaving. The workshop takes place in Emma's studio, where you can select from a broad range of yarns that you can play and experiment with as you become more familiar with how weaving works. Emma will introduce you to the basic motions of weaving, help you understand how the different structures work, and explain how different warp threadings can impact your designs.

You'll also have the chance to try designing your own weave structures, and create your own cloth sample to take home with you.

What's included?

  • Your own loom for the duration of the workshop, pre-threaded and ready to weave
  • All yarns and weaving materials
  • Beginner's catalogue of weave structures
