If you would like to learn how to weave and have no experience or are a weaver who would like to learn new skills, I am offering workshops and tuition from April 2023.
Introduction to Weaving
The 'Introduction to Weaving' workshop is for absolute beginners and is designed to give you a taste of the endless possibilities of loom weaving. The workshop will begin with the very basics and will take you through the sequence of stages to start weaving independently. These include selecting and designing a warp, understanding the process of getting a loom ready to weave and beginning to weave and experiment on the loom. This workshop is a one day session from 10.30am -4.30pm with a break for lunch. Workshop dates and booking can be found on the Workshop Booking page.
Dressing Your Loom
This workshop is designed to take students through the stages of preparing a warp to dressing a loom. There will be advice on selecting warp yarns, calculating sett and warping the loom from back to front. Learn how to tackle this essential skill with hands-on help and on one of my studio's table looms.All equipment and materials are provided, however if you would like to use your own loom, please let me know in advance.
This workshop is a one day session from 10.30am- 4.30pm with a break for lunch. Workshop dates and booking can be found on the Workshop Booking page.
I have a number of looms in my studio - a four-shaft table loom, two eight-shaft table looms, a 24 shaft dobby loom and an eight-shaft countermarch floor loom. Students will have the opportunity to try out many of these looms during the course of a workshop. (I may have work on one or another but the remainder will be set up for experimentation.)
I am also keen to work with students of all abilities and to make my studio a base for learning together. So if you would like to enquire about individual tuition, please contact me directly using the Contact Page.
