Relax and enjoy a day in our beautiful studio learning how to make your own wall hanging!
In this beginners weaving workshop, we will cover all the basics to using a lap loom, a range of different stitch types and techniques and tricks for starting out as well as steps for finishing and hanging your woven piece.
Weaving looms - take home kit included
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). You will take home a complete kit as part of your class to continue your weaving.
A wide selection of beautiful wools and roving will be available for you to use. Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 participants, to enable plenty of one-on-one assistance in a small group environment.
"Excellent beginners weaving workshop delivered by Anna who was very happy to work with the varying capability and speed of each student. Anna is an excellent teacher, she is patient and explains each step very clearly. She also encouraged us to video each stitch as she was showing us. I've since used the videos a number of times to continue my weaving, extremely helpful. Anna is low key and good fun which made the weaving achievable and really enjoyable. I am now addicted and have joined the cult of weaving. Thanks Anna!" Fiona (6 June 2018)

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.
