Taught by Amanda Ho from The Weavers Workroom
Learn to weave with a portable and simple loom with materials that you may already have on hand.
What you will learn:
You will take home your own handcrafted weaving kit, your own woven piece and an instruction sheet with tips and tricks.
Looms and materials are supplied, we have a large selection of yarns available on the day. You may like to bring along scraps of yarn, fabric, fibres, ribbons, beads, etc. that you may want to incorporate into your piece.
If you are unable to attend a workshop but would still like to learn to weave our handcrafted weaving kits are available for purchase separately in our shop.
I attended a beginner's class in Weaving last Sunday. Amanda was the teacher with Nichola assisting: they were a great combination. The class size was ideally small with lots of individual attention available. Amanda was well organised and allocated her time across the various techniques. The class could have benefited from an additional hour to allow for the integration of the finishing of a piece from theory into practice but even with the allocated three hours, I would recommend this class. Nichola's little touches of a cuppa with a slice of home-baked cake was memorable. Well done gals and thanks for bringing this to the West!
Great weaving class for beginners! Love the studio space, has a very cool vibe and everyone was so friendly. And you get a loom frame to practice at home...! Id def come back for other workshops.
I enjoyed a lovely couple of hours in a cute little creative space learning the basics of weaving which was enhanced by the provision of delicious homemade cake. The course was helpful in providing a grounding for me to explore the world of weaving and one which I am enjoying very much.
