You will learn how to follow a lifting plan and weave a variety of different patterns, as well as having access to a wide variety of weft yarns to enable you to experiment with texture and colour blending. You will come away with your own selection of sample fabrics. All the looms will be set up in advance using merino wool or you can arrange to bring your own.
