Private Workshop (one-to-one): Introduction to Hand-weaving [4 Hours]
Private Workshop: Introduction to Hand-weaving
Learn to weave on a traditional hand loom using the equipment, tools, materials and processes necessary to create handwoven textiles in our one-to-one, Private Introduction to Hand-weaving workshop.
Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate
In this beginner-intermediate hand-weaving workshop students will discover the exciting craft discipline of handwoven textiles. From planning a warp to designing and weaving their first handwoven fabric, this workshop enables students to learn the necessary techniques and traditions of this age-old craft in a private setting.
In the 4 hour workshop you will be learning to weave on a traditional hand loom. This semi-mechanical loom offers students the unique opportunity to explore the effects of different patterns, weaving techniques and materials at greater speed than a frame loom. In this workshop we will demonstrate all the steps needed to go from cones of yarn to finished fabric, giving you a chance to try each step. You will, however, focus on how patterns are created, allowing you to choose your own yarns from our large selection of materials and then proceed to weave your very own handwoven textile. You will complete enough handwoven fabric in this session to create a table mat with yarns of your choosing.
