Description:

Enjoy a day learning about the ancient craft of weaving, I teach the fundamentals of weaving to get you started on a journey of discovery. Weave your own tweed sampler using a table loom. Spend a day here in the studio; Learn how to design your own tweeds, and woolly delights. From the design to the weave you will experience a day trying a new craft or refreshing you skills.

My 16 year old son attended this course. He is interested in taking up weaving as a career. Ashleigh created a one to one day for him, letting him try different looms & techniques. He had a lovely lunch included in the price. He brought home samples he'd woven & handouts & lots of useful advice. He got a great follow up email with loads of links & can go back for a follow up course for £30. A great course run by a really nice guy. A really good way to get into weaving.

Thank you very much for lessons last week, very well structured, very patient! delicious lunch at Cargill's restaurant and overall a most recommendable experience. I enjoyed it very much.

I found the tuition really useful and helpful - you answered all my questions and with patience. Although it is early days yet I find I am remembering well - I have my loom up and running at home. I am now totally hooked on weaving!

-

I was taught how to weave by Ashleigh and rate his teaching and course content very highly. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all aspects of weaving, and combines a sound knowledge base with the ability to let a learner move at her own pace. As a result of doing a weaving course with Ashleigh, I bought a small hand loom and was able to go back to see him as I developed new skills. What I really liked about this course was its setting in Blairgowrie, with its links to weaving history. Highly recommended.
