Beginners Weaving Workshop - Dobby & Rose

X

Description

Set within our relaxed home studio in the Surrey countryside, this Beginner’s Workshop will allow you to try weaving various weave structures on a pre-warped 8 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 four Table Looms running per workshop, it allows hands on help and freedom to ask as many questions as you like. Location: 1 Silver Birch Cottages, Hyde Lane, Farnham, GU10 2LP During the workshop, Rebecca will go through the weaving process, telling you how the loom has been set up and give an explanation of different structures you can try during the session. Around 30-40 minutes later, you will be able to start weaving.. You will be able to start designing your own piece of fabric, using any yarns that you can find within the studio!
