Ever wanted to try your hand at weaving but not sure where to start? In this beginners weaving workshop, we will cover all the basics to using a lap loom, simple techniques and tricks for starting out as well as steps for finishing and hanging your woven piece.
You will learn a range of different stitch types, patterns and colours to create your weaving design. We will also look at different weaving styles from artists around the world and how their techniques can provide us with colour and design inspiration. A wide selection of beautiful wools and roving will be available for you to use.
We use beautiful Australian-made looms and tools supplied by Loom & Spindle; made locally on the Mornington Peninsula from timber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). (Note for Teens we use a slighter smaller weaving loom.)

Good tunes, good times
A great craft workshop is more than learning a new creative skill and making something yourself. It's about meeting friends, sharing laughs and having a fabulous day out. That's why our kids classes include treats and tunes to keep the creative juices flowing. And for our adult classes, we offer nibbles with tea, coffee, wine or bubbles - whatever takes your fancy.
