Weave your own unique Scarf using gorgeous hand dyed yarns.
Join Jessamy and Sofia as they introduce you to the addictive world of weaving.
Complete beginners are welcome on this Workshop here you will use rigid heddle looms to weave on. You can even choose which colours you'd like us to warp your loom with so you can get weaving on the day
You're welcome to bring along any textured yarns or ribbons to add to your work but there will be plenty of choice of yarns and colours if you don't
When you book you will receive a confirmation of your booking and we'll ask you which date you'd like to come along too. Then you'll receive a choice of yarns to choose for your warp and on the day there will be loads of different yarns, solid colours, semi solids, speckles etc for you to tuck in to.
Social distancing is very important to us as we have vulnerable people in our families but we also believe life must go on. So, we will keep a 2m distance, hand sanitiser will be available and we will keep a record of who comes to the class.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
We provide the looms for you to weave on and all yarn.
We use Schaacht, Kromski and Ashford looms on our workshops so if there is one in particular you would like to weave on, let us know and we can arrange that for you

Had the best day learning how to weave, using beautiful yarns in a vast array of colours. The tutors Jessamy and Sophia were very knowledgeable and right on hand but also did not hover. The length of the course is just right to come away with your own personally designed scarf.
Response from Lazykate:Thank you so much for leaving your feedback. We're so pleased you enjoyed the day, it was lovely spending some time with you
Cathy set a perfect balance between support and letting us get on with it! Her wools are beautiful and I think everyone was really proud of our weaving projects today. Thank you Cathy
Response from Lazykate:Thank you Helen, this is very kind of you. Your enthusiasm was infectious, it was a lovely day
I really enjoyed the day and being a new weaver was very pleased with how much we all achieved. Cathy was very knowledgeable and helpful, and her yarns are just gorgeous to work with. Everything was setup ready for us, fantastic choice of colours to use, and we even used some silks one of the attendees brought with her.
The Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead was a perfect venue, fabulous cafe, lovely people and lots of space, easy parking, everything we needed. I'm definitely interested in continuing to weave and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course.
Response from Lazykate:Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Lorraine and such a lovely one at that. I really appreciate it.
Excellent course - really enjoyed it when I participated today (11/02/17). Cathy set a very comfortable, homely, reassuring atmosphere and we all achieved a great deal in the half day. I took home my project with some extra embroidery thread to help me finish it, and worked on it some more this afternoon. Just lovely. Would really recommend. LLxx
