Saturday 21st May | Learn to Loom Weave with Ali Sharman |
Spend the day with handweaver Ali Sharman learning how to weave patterns on a table loom. The looms will be warped up and ready to go so you can concentrate on weaving.
You’ll learn how to follow simple instructions to create a variety of patterns, or you might like to choose from a selection of yarns to experiment with colour and texture. When you remove your cloth from the loom you will learn how to twist a decorative fringe.
At the end of the day, you will have produced a sampler that you can use to make a small item such as a cafetiere cosy or to keep as a reference for your future weaving projects if you prefer.
Suitable for beginners.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
