S P I R A L W E A V I N G and weaving in the round, a WORKSHOP-IN-A-BOX- a perfect introduction for beginners or a fun alternative to a traditional rectangular frame loom - delivered through the post to your door. From the comfort of your own home enjoy the relaxing and slightly addictive art of weaving - following the workshop step by step. You will be guided through warping the loom and following a range of weaving techniques to achieve exciting textural effects. Once you have finished weaving there's details covering removing your weaving and finishing off your piece, before rethreading your loom to begin again! (The instructions are easy to follow photos.) By following this workshop you’ll gain all the skills to continue experimenting with circular weaving and as the techniques are transferable to other frame loom weaving this may just be the beginning of you next hobby. (But don't worry, weaving is a great way to use up all those odds and ends of yarn you may have in your yarn stash!) The loom and yarn colour themes are: SUNSET - an orange loom with yarns and fibres in glowing oranges and reds. MOORLAND - a purple loom with yarns in heathers, purples and greens. (currently out of stock) OCEAN - a blue loom with yarns in sea blues, greens and whites. There is limited availability for each colour so please do message me before ordering just to check what colours I currently have in stock.

My love of weaving began with a small Spears loom as a child but it wasn’t until I began my textile degree at Central Saint Martins London, that I really became drawn to weaving For many years after graduating I explored and experimented with woven structures and exhibited my work widely. Alongside weaving I taught FE & HE textiles until I took time out to be with my young family. In recent years I have established my mobile weave studio and love introducing weaving to anyone and everyone.
