About the Course
This is a great course for both weavers with some experience and complete novices. The day starts with the set up of the loom explained as well as the use of different yarns and patterns and the effect these have on the cloth. Each group member gets their own table loom to use that is already set up, it's up to you to then pick colours and patterns and create your own fabric.
All fabric woven during the course is then cut off for you to take away with you.
Groups must be of at least 3 people and can be booked in at a time convenient to you. If you are an individual looking to join a group please see the nominated dates.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Loom hire and all yarns are included. Refreshments are provided
I was given my day of weaving as a gift - and it has been a most wonderful treat!
On arrival (15mins from Station), I marvelled at Katherines fabulous work on sale in her shop before joining a small group in the well equiped workshop downstairs.
After Katherines excellent explanatory talk we each began our chance of weaving a piece.
It was exciting selecting yarns from the large choice available and then settling to a spell of creativity!
Katherines help is near should you need it, and I appreciated her encouraging and most helpful manner.
Time flies, its peaceful, friendly, fun and hugely engrossing.
I'm amazed at my achievement! A very happy day! Many thanks Katherine.

We had a fab afternoon, immersed in weaving - very informative and relaxing at the same time. Thought Katherine was lovely and we aim to return at some point to learn more about threading up the loom and the warping process.
I came away with a piece of work that I was really proud of, although now will appreciate more the hours and talent that goes into creating handmade fabrics. Thank you.”
