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 tweeds and woolly delights. From the design to the weave you will experience a day trying a new craft or refreshing your skills.

The day aims to get you excited and ready for your own weaving journey. We do the hard work as your loom will be pre-warped, and ready to go.

 " This was probably the best craft course that I have attended.  With very well gauged individual tuition I went from being a complete novice to producing an attractive piece of fabric within the day. I was given time to consolidate each new technique before moving on to the next and experimenting with different textures of yarn. It was a relaxing and productive day and excellent value as all of the materials and an enjoyable lunch were included in the fee. I shall  definitely be returning to consolidate my skills."
