About the Course
Join local Cumbrian weaver, Jan Beadle, on this 2 day workshop where she will take you through the whole process of winding a warp, dressing a loom and then weaving your cloth. The course is suitable for absolute beginners and also weavers wanting to develop their skills further. You will be working on a 4 shaft table loom and will produce a length which would be suitable for a scarf.
Jan moved to Cumbria in the mid 80’s after completing her BA Hons in Textiles. She has over 30 years experience in the textile field working in Higher Education running a Constructed Textile Resource at University of Cumbria until 2010, when she decided to start concentrating full time on making and exhibiting her own work. Jan is a member of the Wool Clip, a co-operative of local craftspeople based at Caldbeck in North Cumbria and she is one of the organisers of Woolfest in Cockermouth. As well as selling her work in many galleries around the UK Jan runs specialist weave courses for a wide range of abilities.
