The Whole Table Loom Set Up - Dobby & Rose
The Whole Loom Set Up Workshop If you have had previous experience of weaving and want to take it to the next level, this workshop is ideal. The course maybe an intense 2 days, but the location and Rebecca will ensure it is a relaxed and enjoyable experience. This workshop is perfect for those who have some knowledge of weaving or 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 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. There is a maximum of four table looms running per session so you will get detailed instructions, full attention and support when needed. Day 1 The aim for the first day is to wind a warp using colours and a design that you choose. 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. Day 2 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.
