7 Weeks Evening Weaving Course
About the Course
This 7-week evening course provides the opportunity to learn how to weave on a 4-shaft loom.
You will learn about this immersive process used for millennia to create cloths. Time on the loom is a great way to escape everyday worries, and we hope you enjoy the process as much as we enjoy teaching it.
Looms will be set up and ready to weave so you can get to grips with learning about different types of weave structures and yarns.
The aim is to make a scarf to take home with you based on your own design development.
