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.

Having got ‘the weaving bug’ after the Beginners Workshop in May, I decided to get a table loom. Not having had any previous weaving experience, I quickly realised that warping was not going to be easy without some help, so, last week it was the Intermediate Workshop. What a brilliant course! Rebecca was patient and caring, explaining every step clearly and concisely. I am so happy to be let loose with my loom at home (and even made myself an extra stick shuttle out of a plastic ruler yesterday!)
Thank you so much Rebecca - I can’t rate you highly enough.

Having already attended the beginners course with Rebecca, this was a great follow on. There was a lot of information to take in, but Rebecca made it easy to follow and understand. I left feeling that the many of the mysteries of how a hand loom is set up and how the whole process of weaving works had been explained. It was a lovely couple of days; wish it had been longer as it is a great way to spend time. I am looking to buy my own loom and I know that Rebecca will be available with help and advice.

I had previously completed the beginners weaving class and loved it and the intermediate class did not let me down. Rebecca is a great tutor and has a clear passion for her craft. It was so much fun chatting about yarn while learning a new skill. I would highly recommend the class.

This is another fantastic course offered by Rebecca. Rebecca took us through the whole process of setting up a loom. I was fortunate enough to have my own loom and warping mill and to be able to do the entire process in practise was just amazing. Having done the Beginner's course previously I was under no illusion that process of setting up your own loom was the difficult part, but Rebecca made it very easy - everything was explained in detail and with great patience. I am absolutely hooked and can't wait to finish the scarf that I will have done on my own (with Rebecca's help, of course) and then move onto my next project. Whilst it is still a little daunting with the accompanying detailed course notes, I am confident that I can. Thank you Rebecca, you have inspired me to take up a new hobby which I am absolutely passionate about. I can't recommend Rebecca highly enough!

I attended the two day Intermediate weaving course, and it was perfect for me! Rebecca took me through the whole process of setting up a loom, which I had never done before, and then taught me how to read the notation for various types of fabric which I wove as a sample piece. Every step was explained with great clarity, and through demonstrations, but mostly through guiding my own hands-on work. She hit the perfect balance between allowing me to get on with it myself, whilst being immediately on hand when I needed help! She was very skilled at turning my mistakes into learning opportunities, and I now feel confident to have a go at weaving on my own!

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.

- - #17869

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.
