Group Weaving Workshops
Group Weaving Workshops:
Our partnership with The Oxford Weaving Studio continues in 2019 with a host of weaving workshops taking place in our studio. Although we continue to book workshops independently on this website, you are most welcome to click on each workshop below or visit their website for more detailed information or to purchase weaving frame looms, tools and yarn at www.oxfordweavingstudio.com.
Our newest workshop brings us back to our roots by offering students the opportunity to learn to weave on a hand loom. Over a 2-day period, students will work in pairs to learn how to set up a hand loom and weave their very own textile samples. Student work will also be supported by our frame looms which each student will bring home to further their knowledge of patterns.
Using your chosen Yarn Starter Pack and our unique Frame Loom and Weaving Tools, you will learn modern tapestry weaving techniques like Soumak and Rya knots (fringe) and classic hand-weaving techniques such as plain weave (tabby) and ribs to create a wall-hanging that reflects your personal style.
Working on our uniquely designed frame loom, students will learn to weave without needing to follow a rigid curriculum. You will cover traditional weaving patterns such as plain weave (tabby), twills, hop sack and ribs, as well as contemporary tapestry weaving techniques such as Soumak and Rya knots. You will also learn to set up your frame loom and finish off your woven piece and be given insight into how your newly-acquired skills also work on hand looms.
Each student will also take home one of our small, uniquely designed CSD Frame Looms and its corresponding set of Weaving Tools, a Yarn Starter Pack full of gorgeous yarns and a Tote Bag to hold it all in!
In this workshop you will learn to weave your very own cushion cover. Under our guidance, you will wind your very own blend of yarns from a selection of gorgeous weaving yarns from our studio, combine them with your preferred colour of wool roving and learn a selection of classic hand-weaving techniques to personalise your own version of this popular cushion design.

Working to the students own experience and ability of weaving, we tailor this workshop to ensure the student gets the most out of their time with us. Whether they are a true beginner, wish to brush up on their skill set or try some advanced techniques, we are able to help. Sessions can be booked in 4, 6, 8 or 12 hour sessions and over multiple days.
