About the Course

I am delighted to have teamed up with Alexsis at her fantastic new premises 'Seeded' 'in Southsea to offer a 6 hour workshop from 10am - 4pm.

What's included

The course price includes 6 hours of guided tuition, use of the looms and all materials including yarns and a selection of fibres including organic cotton, bamboo, flax and hemp.

You will be given your own clear workshop handouts to take away with you and hot drinks and biscuits (gluten free & vegan) will be available throughout the workshop.

What to expect

The workshop will teach you the basic principles and terminology of weaving and you will create a small woven piece using a frame loom.

Spaces are limited to ensure you receive as much guidance as you need.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those that have a little experience and would like a refresher.

You will have the opportunity to buy your loom at the the end of the workshop for £20. Cash is preferable.

Cancellation policy

Workshop cancellations by you

Our workshops are priced as fairly as possible. We therefore have to have a clear cancellation policy to ensure that we cover our costs and the on going viability of the workshop.
Please check your diary carefully to ensure that you are available to attend any workshops you are booking with us.

All our workshops are strictly non-refundable in all circumstances.

If you give more than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop your options are as follows:

We will be happy to transfer you to another workshop, space permitting.
If there are no suitable future dates for you to transfer to we can provide a voucher to be used for a future workshop booking, this will be valid for one year from the date of issue.
You can of course send someone in your place at any time, but please note that this is your responsibility to find a replacement person and you must let us know in advance who will be attending.
If you give less than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop then your options are as follows:

If you would like to transfer, we can only transfer you to a future workshop if your place is re-sold.
If you would like to transfer and the place is not re-sold, we can add you to a last minute availability waiting list for future dates of the workshop. If there are still unsold places on the workshop with 24-48 hours until the workshop is due to take place, we will offer you a place at no additional charge. Please note this option is not a guarantee of a space.
We will do our best to fill the place within this time. Please be aware that in our experience it can be difficult to fill places on workshops at short notice.

Multiple class sessions

Some of our workshops take place over several sessions. If you miss a session unfortunately we cannot offer a make up session. If you require further tuition to complete your project you may be able to book 1:1 lessons depending on the project and tuition required.

Spent a lovely day with Ellie and 3 others learning the weaving basics on a handloom. Ellie was really great at explaining the techniques and helping when things went a bit wrong! It was a very pleasant, relaxing day learning something new. Thanks Ellie.

Thank you Ellie for such a great day learning hand loom weaving. I loved your fantastic selection of vegetable dyed and sustainable fibres to experiment with. I am thrilled with the little piece I have produced and plan to continue with this new skill at home. Many thanks again
