About the Course
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.

Rebecca is an excellent and very patient tutor. She took us through the process of setting up a loom in easy to follow steps and supported this with an excellent written guide for when we start out on our own. I really enjoyed the course and Rebecca’s enthusiasm for her subject. I would highly recommend Rebecca for anyone who has an interest in exploring weaving

A wonderful course full of useful information. Rebecca is very generous with her time allowing you to try all aspects of the course after providing a demonstration. She explains the technical details so that you can understand each step and is always willing to answer any queries. I am now looking to purchase my own loom and am excited about producing my own fabric. I would thoroughly recommend both Rebecca as a tutor and this course as a way to progress with weaving.

Two days of complete absorption which gave me the confidence to take weaving further. I've now bought my own loom and found the course notes invaluable in setting it up; it's very exciting to begin weaving fabric that I could use around my home. Rebecca is a great tutor; she didn't overwhelm me with information but started each step and let me complete it. I highly recommend this course.

I returned to Rebecca's studio for the Intermediate course. I learned so much, was very inspired and was very pleased with the sample I produced. I hope to return again to weave the rest of the warp!
Rebecca is a very patient and helpful teacher, allowing you to learn at your own pace. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

I loved this course ! Rebecca is a calm and competent tutor who clearly explained each step of the processes before setting us to work. I had tried a bit of weaving in the past, learning from books, but it quickly became clear that a real-life teacher is a MUCH more effective way of learning. Rebecca's studio is in a very peaceful part of the Surrey countryside and after two days in the studio I left feeling relaxed and very pleased with the piece of fabric I had produced. I'd love to go back and would highly recommend.

Fantastic course. Rebecca was so welcoming and put me at ease as soon as I arrived. She was patient, kind and very encouraging and adapted the course for me as a profoundly deaf lip reader. I would recommend her to anyone.
