Design and weave your own Scarf beginners day course with Jan Beadle

Spend a day on a loom learning the finger manipulated Leno technique, which produces beautiful lace effect.
Leno only requires a basic loom that can do a plain weave so don't be daunted, anyone can do it!
This means that beginners can sign up for this course and create a plain weave scarf.

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?

Welcome drinks : fresh coffee & home made biscuits, a lovely 2 course Aga lunch served in our farmhouse kitchen or outside in the Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden as soon as it's warm enough. To finish off the day, a freshly made Cream Tea (including Aga-baked scones, cream and jam).

Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.

We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 from our friendly family run Cycle Cafe Tea Garden on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.

Approximate material charges will be around £5 -£8 per scarf.
