About the Course

Come and learn about weaving on a small frame to create an imaginative wall-hanging using a selection of yarns and fibres.

It's easy and fun!

You will learn a variety of techniques which give different effects and you will learn about mixing colours and yarns. These techniques are applicable for all kinds of weaving so if you already weave you might pick up some useful hints and tips!

Equipment can bought at the end of the worshop.
Fiona is an Ashford dealer. She sells both spinning and weaving equipment plus yarns and fibres.

Others Textile workshops available including Dyeing with Synthetic and Natural Dyes, Weaving, Spinning and Felting. Contact her for more details.

What's included in the price?

The workshop will be in my studio, from 10.30am to 4pm. I will provide everything required for the day, plus a light lunch, refreshments and home-made scones.

If you've been to one of my workshops before please leave a review. I look forward to seeing you again.



Want to review this course?

I really enjoyed the 1 day introduction course, my piece of work I created from this event is on my wall! I have now booked for the 2nd day. The course teaches you the basics for weaving and provides you with the confidence to try new methods and materials. Fiona is a very knowledgeable tapestry weaver. I can recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn tapestry weaving. Great lunch too.

Thanks Jackie. So glad you enjoyed it. It was lovely to meet you and Barbara. Look forward to seeing you both again in October.

A very enjoyable day. The small group meant personal tuition and so it was easy to learn new skills. Thank you Fiona. The food was good as well!
