An Introduction to Weaving with a Table Loom, Oxford

X

Description

Join hand-weaver Jeremy Uden for a day-long taste of weaving. You will learn the basics of weaving on a 4-shaft table loom, which will be prepared and ready to use. We will draw out the structures on graph paper before you weave them, which will give you a real insight into how weaving actually works! By the end of the day, you will create a woven sampler to take home with you, with your own choice of colours for your weft. The course is an excellent introduction to weaving on a hand loom. There is a maximum of three people on each course, which I can run on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. This small group size gives you the chance to work at your own pace, and ask as many questions as you like! I'm also happy to run it for just one person. I live in a small village near Oxford, with excellent access from Junction 8/8a on the M40. There is ample parking at my house.

Maker


I have been weaving for 10 years, and completed a two year course in Textile Design for Handweavers in 2017. Since then I have been developing my own designs for fabric, and have recently had work exhibited in the Complex Weaver's exhibition 'Complexity' in Knoxville, 2022.
