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’ when participants wove their own scarf on a rigid heddle loom. In November we welcomed 10 new weavers for an afternoon of festive weaving, in just 4 hours they all wove either a Christmas table runner or fabric to make a cowl scarf. See below for the details of these previous workshops.

The looms will be warped up ready to start weaving. For those weavers with some experience there is the option of learning how to use a pick up stick to weave more complex designs.

Beginners Course – Learning to weave on a rigid heddle loom – June 2022
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.
