Weaving Workshops

Learn to Weave

Learn to Weave!

Have you always wanted to learn how to weave? It’s easier than you think!

Learn to weave on the simple yet versatile Rigid Heddle loom. I offer workshops in Borough Green, Kent, United Kingdom.  (Borough Green is located between Maidstone and Sevenoaks on the A25. Easy access from the M20 and M26.)

When?

The workshops are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 8:000 am to 4:00 pm.

How Much?

The workshop cost is £60 and includes all materials and use of a loom.

What will I learn? Will it be right for me?

Even if you have never used a loom before, I will teach you how to warp a Rigid Heddle loom and how to weave various weave structures.

Your project will be a small table runner, like the one pictured to the right,  in your choice of colours.  Each section of the table runner will be woven in a different weave structure, so that you will learn many techniques such as plain (tabby) weave, leno lace, pick-up stick patterns, weaving with two shuttles, and hem stitching.  This may sound complicated, but it’s really not!  I will guide you every step of the way.

Once you learn these techniques, they can be used to create woven wearables (scarves, shawls, etc), as well as items for the home.

There is a maximum of 2 students per weekend, so the instruction is very individual and personal.

Weaving on the Rigid Heddle loom appeals to knitters, spinners, and crocheters because you can use the yarns in your stash, without having to buy special weaving yarns. Rigid Heddle looms are relatively inexpensive, the smallest ones costing right around £100. (Although I don’t sell looms, I can help guide you if you decide to purchase one.)
