This Intermediate Workshop is perfect for those who have some knowledge of Weaving or for those who have taken the Beginners Weaving Workshop and would like to learn how to set up a loom for themselves. It will be a fast paced workshop as there is a lot to cover within the two days! During the Workshop, you will learn how to wind a warp and then learn all of the processes in between to get the loom ready for Weaving. Once you are all set up, the remaining time will be spent Weaving your very own piece of fabric, using various weave structures. You will be able to choose from a variety of yarns to design and weave your fabric. With only one or two table looms running per session, it allows hands on help and freedom to ask as many questions as you like! The aim for the first day is to wind a warp using a pattern that you will be given to follow. Once you have completed this, you will then put the warp onto the loom and prepare this ready for threading. You will then learn how to thread the loom, which can seem daunting, but you will be given hands on guidance to complete the process. On the second day, the morning will be spent spacing your warp out in a reed and then learning how to tie it on ready for weaving. The remaining time can then be spent weaving using your very own warp. WORKSHOP DATES Bookings for the Intermediate Weaving Workshop are currently being taken - please get in touch or see the website for further information.
