An Introduction to loom woven textiles

X

Description

This 6 week weaving course will be a great introduction to pattern weaving on a table loom. We use both Rigid Heddle and traditional 4-shaft looms to experiment with a range of woven patterns. Exploring a variety of different loom threading orders, you can weave Twill, Tabby, Basket and houndstooth, and make a range of sample fabrics in checks, stripes and diamond patterns. This course will also cover all the basics of reading a pattern draft and the principles of creating a balanced cloth. Classes are suited to small groups, so early booking is recommended. Various time slots for you to complete your course can be booked by prior agreement. Evening, daytime and weekend dates are available.
