Intermediate Weaving Course
November 10 @ 10:00 am - December 15 @ 1:00 pm
The course will take you through the process of setting up a loom through to weaving a final outcome. You will learn how to design and make a warp and how to dress the loom. You will also select and input the weave structure you wish to use into the dobby. You will be rewarded for your hard work by weaving your own project at the end!
You will be in a small class, maximum 6 participants, giving plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive 1 to 1 support and tailored tuition throughout the workshops as well as watching group demonstrations.
The course will take place from 10:00 to 13:00 for 6 fridays from 10th November.
Please note – some initial weaving knowledge is assumed. Dressing the loom requires some dexterity, however support is available should this be welcomed.

Yourselves, ideas , a packed lunch (there are also places to buy lunch in the mill and on Farsley Town Street.)
We will provide
Refreshments (drinks and cake!), some materials and equipment.
