Weaving Courses

Based near Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK we are now running weaving workshops.  In June we ran our first ‘learn to weave day long workshop’.  During the day participants wove their own scarf on a rigid heddle loom, see details of this workshop below.

​Details of our next two scheduled Christmas themed workshops are below.   We are happy to run either of these workshops or a day long scarf weaving workshop at other locations or at other times, so do email us if you can’t make these dates and would like to chat through other options on  on tabbyandtweed@outlook.com.

Beginners Course – Learning to weave on a rigid heddle loom
  
Gillian Siggers and I ran a beginners rigid heddle weaving course in June. Participants were provided with a warped loom in colours that they had chosen. After some advice on colour choice and instruction on the weaving process they proceeded to weave their woollen scarves. They were all delighted with their weaving as were we! We will be doing further courses in the future so please do drop us a message if you would like us to be send you details when dates are calendared.
