Weave a scarf in a day - handloom weaving



'Weave a scarf in a day' is a full day workshop.
You will design your scarf, create a warp and thread your loom and weave your own unique scarf to wear by the end of the day!

In these beginner workshops you will be expertly tutored by Central Saint Martins trained weaver Anne Crowther (Daisy Florence Design) using Ashford looms, which are suitable for those new to weaving.

I have 6 looms available, so each workshop is delivered to a small group which means everyone is fully supported throughout the day. (Due to COVID some venues have a reduced capacity of 4 per workshop)

PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME BEFORE BOOKING to find out the venue location and availability - I teach at a wide range of locations and there may be one which is easier for you to get to :-)

I have held workshops at venues in Bingley, Mytholmroyd, Ripley, Harrogate, Wakefield, Skipton and Thornton although due to COVID some venues are not currently running workshops.
I can also run classes 'on demand' if you have a group of 4 or more participants. I am based in West Yorkshire and I am happy to travel with my looms around Yorkshire and beyond.

Making a booking request via Craftcourses will not guarantee you a place on the date you have selected - once I receive your booking request I will contact the venue on your behalf to check availability and reserve you a place, subject to availability. No money is taken by Craftcourses until I accept your booking.

To avoid disappointment it is always easier if you contact me via the 'Chat with the maker' in advance of making a booking request so I can check availability with the venue first.
Thanks Anne

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

A brilliant workshop which is in equal parts enjoyable, engaging and informative. I had a great time and now have a beautiful scarf to remember my day

My wife and I really enjoyed this course. My wife said that she has now found a new hobby and has asked for a loom for Christmas. Anne was great, she was friendly and chatty and helped everyone individually as they were at different stages of the scarf making process.
I have my own craft business and Anne gave me some advice on websites to advertise and sell my work.

Our venue was at The Craft House, Bingley. They were safe, very friendly and the food was very nice.

Thank you very much, we had a great time.

We had a wonderful day learning to weave with Anne! She explained everything so patiently and clearly and I now feel confident in setting up my own loom. Everyone in the class made beautiful scarves and Anne was so helpful at every stage of the process. The Craft House was a lovely venue too - lunch was delicious and the staff were all so kind and friendly.

Setting up the loom had always been the scary bit but Anne’s patience took us through the stages. I have now done my own loom and also know how to do the finishing touches. Fantastic teaching...many thanks Anne.

Nichola - - #33621

I recently completed this 'weave a scarf in a day' course and i thouroughly enjoyed every minute! Anne was so helpful, from choosing the right yarns, showing us how to set up our looms and giving us tips throughout the weaving to help us get the best finished product.
I am so in love with my scarf and i cannot wait to get back on a loom and make more creations!!
Will definitely recommend to friends, fantastic course, fantastic tutor, and lovely venue. 10/10 😍

I really enjoyed my ‘Weave a scarf in a day’ course with Anne. I hadn’t done any weaving before and she patiently explained and helped with every step of the process - I’m very pleased with my scarf and was inspired to order a loom so I can make more. I will have a wonderful new hobby! Thanks Anne.

Mary Cockroft - - #29390

This was an absolutely excellent introduction to weaving, and yes, it is indeed possible to weave a scarf - quite a long scarf too - in a day! Anne is a really good teacher and I came home feeling so encouraged and inspired that I have already bought a small loom on which to try out my new skills. The day was also fun and therapeutic - there is nothing like focusing for a few hours on something creative to restore one’s sense of wellbeing. Thank you!

Anne is a very good tutor enabling everyone to work at their own pace. It was a very enjoyable day. As advertised, I wove a scarf in a day.

In-person course
Fiona Burks - - #28343

What a fabulous class, everyone was buzzing throughout the whole day, Anne is a great tutor and the students all went home with the most amazing scarves. Four of them have since expanded on their new weaving addiction and bought looms!

Nicola D - - #28344

Very well structured course. Delightful and knowledgeable tutor. Finished on time with a finished scarf. Loved every minute of it. The alchemy of the process is addictive. Went home and bought myself a loom! Need I say more. Ah yes, I'm already booked on another of Anne's courses.

I had a brilliant day on this workshop. Anne’s gentle calm manner was so soothing, and her depth of knowledge and patience made the day fly by. I enjoyed the experience so much that 2 days later, I bought my own loom and am enthusiastically continuing my weaving journey.

I would recommend this workshop to anyone.

Anne was very helpful and always on hand if you needed help shared her knowledge and skills.
Would recommend this workshop.

Joan Wilkinson - - #27517

I had a very enjoyable day at Ripley. This was a technique I had always wanted to try and I was not disappointed with what I learned in six hours. I now am the proud owner of a scarf I can say 'I made myself', with a lot of help from Anne, and it has already been admired.

Anne is a very patient teacher who was very willing to impart of her knowledge. It is certainly a day I would love to repeat.

Thank you Anne

Had a wonderful day, and we both love our scarves.

What a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a day. Anne was great at building our confidence over the course of the day, so much so that everyone left the course with a beautiful wearable scarf and a real sense of what might be possible if we wanted to pursue this type of weaving as a pastime. I particularly valued the selection of yarns available to choose and Anne's great input on colour and texture combinations that will work together to give you the style of scarf you are hoping to achieve. She's a great tutor!

Debbie Stevenson - - #27009

Fantastic day. Anne was a very knowledgable and patient tutor and because there were only 6 participants she could give us all the 1 to 1 attention we needed. Lovely venue at South Square, Thornton with a fab veggie cafe. Delighted with my finished scarf. Highly recommended

In-person course
Bev Blake - - #26526

Excellent course in lovely location. Anne is a first class tutor and has definitely inspired me to take up a new hobby. I would highly recommend this workshop.

In-person course
Catherine Archer - - #26512

Had such a good day with Anne. She’s a brilliant teacher, imparting her knowledge with warmth and humour. I’d brought my own yarn but the others were able to select wools from those she had brought along and we all produced lovely scarves to take home. April was the perfect host, keeping us supplied with refreshments and encouragement. Couldn’t recommend too highly.

Following the hand weaving day in Halifax I did eventually purchase a small rigid heddle loom, and completed my first scarf last week. A big thank you to Anne for introducing me to hand weaving.  I find it very therapeutic and am loving the flexibility of having such a small loom.

We had a lovely day and at the end of it we each had a scarf that we really liked. Anne is an excellent teacher and extremely patient.

Christine - - #21695

Fantastic workshop for anyone looking for an introduction to weaving. I am visually impaired which made it a daunting thought, but Anne and the venue were nothing but helpful and supportive throughout. The workshop went at a good pace matched to the group and I came away with the basic principles and a scarf.

Anna - - #20760

I booked this course for my Mum's birthday and we travelled up here together to learn a new skill. Anne was the perfect teacher and it was a gorgeous day! The group was lovely and we all completed our projects and were very pleased with our work.

I would love to come back and complete another course with Anne, my mum is also now completely obsessed with weaving. Would highly recommend this course to anyone!

In-person course
Alison - - #20616

I could not fault the day. The scarf at the end was obviously the result of the day but the whole day's tutoring and learning about the looms was excellent. I would recommend Anne to anyone interested.
Thank you for a wonderful day.

Sarah T - - #19083

I really enjoyed this course - so much so that I am considering doing it again! Anne was very patient and helpful and the atmosphere within the group was one of relaxed camaraderie. It was fun learning to use the loom and I was proud to bring home a lovely scarf in colours I had chosen. Highly recommended.

In-person course
Jenny - - #19046

I had a fantastic time at the Skipton class. Really friendly and welcoming atmosphere. All 6 of us went home with lovely, individual scarves and a good base of knowledge of how to weave and potential problems to look out for. Anne was so lovely and a great teacher.

I did the workshop to see if I would enjoy weaving and I came home and ordered a loom straight away, so I would say it was definitely a success!

In-person course
Kathryn - - #18613

My 11 year old daughter and myself both found it a really enjoyable day and would thoroughly recommend it for crafty types, even the younger ones. Loom buying imminent!

Brilliant course. Anne was an excellent teacher.
Absolutely everyone on the course finished their scarf all individual and all fantastic.
I am now feeling the NEED for a loom...😁

Wonderful way to spend a Saturday on this enjoyable scarf weaving workshop in a fantastic place.
As a complete novice I managed to produce a lovely scarf with the guidance and expertise of tutor Anne.
I appreciated Anne’s knowledge and patience and would highly recommend anyone to have a go!

A very friendly and patients tutor who encouraged people to work at their own pace but still accomadating to all.

Jayne Gilligan - - #15380

A wonderful day. Anne was a patient tutor who's advice was delivered clearly, calmly and instilled confidence in all the class. A nice size class enabled us all to receive one to one guidance as and when necessary. I was worried that I would never weave a scarf in a day but I did and never felt under any pressure.
So proud of the scarf I produced. Would definitely recommend to others.

In-person course
Paul Shackleton - - #15063

What a great day. A friendly relaxed atmosphere, clear explanation, plenty of support and working together to gain experience of all aspects of using the loom. I'm probably a rare thing in being a man doing the course but I say to other men be brave and do it, weaving is working with the original machine and it is fascinating.

In-person course
Jessica Read - - #14822

I had a fantastic day. Anne is a great teacher who explains and demonstrates each step clearly. Due to the small class size you get one to one guidence which was so helpful for me. And its lovely to be able to leave the workshop with a finished scarf.

In-person course
Heather Wilson - - #14122

Lovely day. I was so pleased with the scarf that I made in the day. Want to learn more and have booked another course with a group of friends.

In-person course
Chrissie Planchak - - #13961

An amazing one day course! Anne was a perfect instructor - she was patient, calm and managed the class beautifully even when a few student-created problems arose. The small class size was excellent - enough students to have a lovely chat, but small enough that Anne could give us all the help and guidance that we needed. Having a nearly complete project at the end of the session was great. Highly recommend this course and have in fact booked another course with Anne already!

In-person course
Andrina Mullins - - #11619

What a wonderful day Anne was so patient and her instructions were so clear and she had the class at ease. With a beautiful scarf at the end of the day. Thank you so much.
