Description:

Have you ever wanted to learn how to create your own handwoven fabric?

Set within a relaxed home studio in the Surrey countryside, this beginner’s workshop will allow you to try weaving various weave structures on a pre-warped 4 shaft Table Loom and give you the basics of how fabric is constructed. You will be able to choose from a variety of yarns to design and weave your very own piece of fabric which you can take home.

With only two Table Looms running per session, it allows hands on help and freedom to ask as many questions as you like!

Ideal for complete beginners or those wanting a refresher in weaving.

Each session is 3 hours – 10am to 1pm
The first part of the session will go through the weaving process, tell you how the loom has been set up and an explanation given of different structures you can try during the session
The second part is where you will be able to start weaving, exploring yarns and structures.
The third part is when you will be able to weave one larger sample, to display in a frame which you can take home.

A great introduction to weaving. An interesting explanation to the loom and how it is set up and then you have a go! Rebecca answered my numerous questions very patiently. It was great to try out different patterns and to come away with a piece of woven material that I had done. I'll be back to weave another piece again.

I had a wonderful morning with Rebecca. She made the inexplicably complexities of weaving understandable to a complete novice. By the end of the session I had weaved a beautiful sample to frame incorporating various techniques. Rebecca is passionate, incredibly knowledgable about weaving (she has a weaving degree) and a patient and thoughtful teacher. In addition, she makes rather good cookies too!

I had a fantastic morning of weaving on this course. I felt slightly overwhelmed when I first looked into the loom but before I knew it Rebecca had explained the main technical bits and I was weaving. As soon as Rebecca saw that I needed some help or a tip that would help she was there…I also enjoyed asking her a myriad of other weaving questions which she was more than happy to answer.
I have booked my next lesson already!

The course with Dobby and Rose is amazing! Becci is full of weaving knowledge and answered all of my questions. She is also very patient which was appreciated as I am new to weaving. It was lovely to come away with a sample that I had made. I highly recommend the course!
