Weave 101: Get hooked on weaving!

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 (if you can weave enough!) have the option to make your sample up into a small cushion 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
Instruction sheets and a glossary of weaving terminology
Beginners catalogue of weave structures
Tea, coffee, water and light snacks

What should I bring to the workshop?

This can be anything from thin embroidery yarn to chunky knit yarns, or even unconventional materials like metal wires.  This workshop is all about play and experimentation!
If you have special dietary requirements, you may also want to bring your own snacks, as we cannot guarantee the included snacks will meet your needs.

I already know how to weave, is this workshop suitable for me?
This workshop is intended for people who have never woven before.  If you have experience on other looms but have never tried shaft weaving, this workshop is perfect for you as well!  If you have more experience with weaving on a shaft loom, then visit our website and sign up to the Workshop newsletter.  We're working on refresher courses and more advanced level workshops, and will let you know as soon as they are ready!
