So we got you hooked on weaving and now you want to make something even more unique? Thought so. Let’s get you measuring warp and threading up the loom like a pro
Learn how to make your own fabric entirely from scratch. You will start by planning your warp, stripes? rainbow? All neon pink? (oh, that’s just us) It’s up to you – this is your chance to experiment with colours and make a cloth that is entirely your own. You’ll learn to use a warping frame, how to thread your warp onto the loom ready for weaving and then you’ll get the rest of the day to weave onto your own warp using our huge selection of yarns.
Students on this workshop will be weaving a piece of cloth from scratch, on average your cloth will measure up at 1.5/2 metres long. We have a massive range of yarns in the studio so there will definitely be something that works for you depending on any preferences you have. Feel free to bring in any odds and ends of yarn you have at home too! Any ribbons or your Nan’s leftover stash that you don’t know what to do with – using up unmeasurable yarns is what freestyle weaving is all about. Let’s make a beautiful thing that you’ll love and use.
Thinking of buying your own loom? This class would be ideal for you.
What length will be my finished piece?
Good question. You will make just under two mts of warp, which is approximately 100 threads. This will create a piece of around 25cms in width and 1.5 mts in length.
8 hours is a long time no?
Well yeah! But you are most welcome to take a break in the lovely cafe or park next door.
