About the Course

On this beginner’s workshop, led by Carole Storm, you will learn the basics of weaving on a loom and weave a scarf length of fabric, all in one day.

You will learn how to choose weaving materials, warp the loom and create your own cloth on a rigid heddle loom.

By the end of the day you will have a unique woven scarf or sampler. You will also have developed sufficient knowledge and skills to carry on weaving in your own time.

You can bring your own yarns or purchase them on the day.

Who is this course suitable for?

The course is suitable for beginners and improvers, and requires no previous experience. The course requires a moderate degree of manual dexterity and is probably unsuitable for under 12s. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

What will you get from the day?

Apart from a beautiful, hand-crafted scarf, throughout the day Carole will share her extensive knowledge about weaving, including how to select weaving materials, selecting a loom, warping the loom and weaving techniques.
