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. By the end of the day, you will create a woven sampler to take home with you.
There is currently a maximum of one person on each course, which I can run on a Friday or Saturday. Social distancing is possible in my Weaving Studio, which is accessed through my garden, and you would have your own toilet facilities for the day.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
All materials are included.
I can provide tea, coffee etc, but you may prefer to bring your own. Lunch is at 12.30-1.30 (not provided).

I wanted an idea of how easy it was to get started with weaving, what quality of fabric could be produced by a novice and whether it was something I would enjoy at all. This taster day was perfect for that. Everything was set up for us (in a lovely setting) so we could just weave. We first learnt the mechanisms behind the patterns which we were then able to see in action immediately.
Jeremy welcomed us into his home, plied us with a constant stream of tea and biscuits and answered all our questions about weaving, both as an activity and as an art form. He showed us lots of demonstration pieces and explained how they were created.
I found it quite therapeutic with a lot of scope for creativity and can easily see it turning into a long term hobby. We would both recommend Jeremy's course either as a one off taster or an introduction into the world of weaving!
I attended this weaving workshop with a friend - we had a great day learning how to weave and how to read patterns. We were delighted with the samplers we made. We were shown many amazing samplers and items made by the tutor.
Can’t wait to get going with more weaving!
I spent a lovely day understanding weaving diagrams, looking at samples, and best of all, weaving my own sampler, with the understanding to explain it to my husband when I got home.
