Our freestyle weaving class will get even the most inexperienced crafter making their own cloth within minutes of walking through our doors.

We will take you through the process of preparing your yarn and how to use various fibres and techniques to get you started and then our massive stash of over 400 yarns is yours to enjoy. 

We use a simple two pedal floor loom that is perfect for both children from the age of 6 and adults to engage with this traditional craft and learn to make something new and unique with your own two hands. Once you have the basics down, you will be able to pick and choose your textures and colours at your own pace and taste.

Our 2 hour slot is perfect for a taster on our looms, you’ll get to explore plain weave and experiment with all of our yarns. The 5 hour slot will give you enough time to make a much longer piece of fabric, you’ll find that in the 5 hour booking you’ll really zone out and get to grips with the loom and your own unique weaving style.

Get weaving already!

Freestyle Weaving FAQs

Can I stay longer?

Yes. We charge £12.50 per half hour after your initial booking time so if the loom is available you can stay as long as you like. 

What should I bring?

Your creativity! We provide everything you need for all of our sessions. If you have a special yarn that you’d like to incorporate, bring it along.

What if I'm late?

Thats a shame. Depending on the next booking, we will see what we can do.

Children's prices?

We have em! We class children in the studio as 12 and under. After that Mazel Tov! You’re an adult and your weaving hands are adult standard. The youngest we take in the studio is 6 years old, we’d love to have younger ones but the looms are far too big and fiddly for them. If you bring a child younger than 6 we won’t offer a refund or allow them to participate in the workshop.

Can I take breaks?

Absolutely. This time is yours. Popping out for lunch/dinner/elevenses, especially during the 5 hour session is sweet with us.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable, flat shoes. You’re more than welcome to take your shoes off if you’re really big into heels but you do so at your own risk! Bring a paid of slippers – that would be ideal.

What yarns will you have in stock and what colour will my warp be?

Our yarn providers are hugely varied so you’ll never get exactly the same yarns when you revisit. We make sure that we have a full colour spectrum and that there are fibres and weights of yarn that suit all of our customers.

Our warp varies too! It will always be one colour but we can’t guarantee any colour warp on the looms on the day you visit. We buy up a lot of dead stock from mills so that we can be as conscious with our stock as possible so you never know what colour you’re going to get. It’s also more exciting for us!

If you’re interested in a specific colour warp or experimenting with stripes or patterned warp you can always book into our Warp to Weft workshop and experiment away!

“After attending the freestyle weaving class 3 times, I can firmly say that this is one of the funnest ways to spend 2 hours.”
