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 their workshop space. 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.
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.
Using your chosen Yarn Starter Pack and our unique Frame Loom and Weaving Tools, you will learn modern tapestry weaving techniques like Soumak and classic hand-weaving techniques such as plain weave (tabby) and ribs to create 2 small lavender sachets. Depending on the time available, you will complete the sachet(s) in the workshop by sewing the handwoven fronts to a 100% linen fabric backing, fill with locally-sourced lavender and complete the sachet(s) with hand-stitching.
Building upon your knowledge from our Level 1: Introduction to Weaving Workshop, we will aim to further your weaving skills with new techniques and patterns and begin to discuss design concepts that form the cornerstone of hand-weaving.
This class would suit those new to weaving and looking to learn a new craft skill 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 loom and finish off your woven piece.
Each student will also take home one of our 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 (max. size 45cm x 45cm) in the popular 'Ripples' pattern. 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.
