About the Course
A Sunday workshop for beginners in the beautiful setting of the Fulflood Gallery, just a three minute walk from Winchester train station.
What to expect:
The workshop will teach you the basic principles and terminology of weaving and you will create a small wall hanging using a frame loom.
Spaces are limited to ensure so 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.
About your tutor:
Ellie Fisher is a textile designer with a foundation in textiles from Winchester School of Art and a BA and MA from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
With over 15 years of weaving experience she is passionate about sharing her love of textiles.

I enjoyed this so much. Felt I'd really learnt everything I needed to get going - and have since done so! Elka is a great teacher and very encouraging.
