Peg Loom Weaving at Stiwdio 3

Loom pegs and woven fabric


In this hands on workshop you will learn simple weaving techniques and make a soft, durable sitting mat from local sheep fleece in natural and plant dyed colours. Peg loom weaving is a fun, easy to learn technique and great for all ages and abilities. It’s also great for smallholders who would like to find different uses for their own fleeces.

You will learn how to warp up a loom to weave and produce a soft durable sitting mat which will be a delight to sit on as well as a delight to make.

Your tutor Helen Hickman is a professional hand weaver, hand spinner and hand dyer and comes fro a long line of creative women, seamstress’s embroiderers and homemakers. Based in rural Carmarthenshire, southwest Wales UK the natural products she creates are all made by hand & reflects her love of wool, nature & a homespun lifestyle.

What's included in the price?

Wooden peg looms, washed sheep fleece, craft cotton & scissors will all be provided but if you have your own fleece you would like to bring along then please do!

At the end of the day you will have the opportunity to purchase the peg loom you have been using so you can weave further projects at home. Our cafe on the floor below our spacious teaching area excels in producing super tasty dishes from locally sourced ingredients.
