Loom Hire with Technician

14th April 2023 @ 10:00 am - 16th April 2023 @ 4:00 pm


You’ll be assigned your own personal loom for the 3 days and you are welcome to weave for as long or as little as you like between 10:00- 16:00 each day.

Looms are set up with a neutral grey warp meaning you can begin weaving straight away. Please let us know if you would like the loom without a warp so that you can add your own.

Please note – an additional £10.00 per day is required to cover the cost of materials.

There is no teaching included within these 3 days. Participants are expected to work independently. Agnis will be available on Friday and Saturday mornings from 10:00 – 12:00 and on the Sunday afternoon from 2:00 – 4:00 to help answer any questions should they arise.


Things to bring

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!), all materials and equipment.

About your tutor

Agnis has a passion for textiles and specialises in weave. She is based in Leeds, Yorkshire and can always be found making, both independently and often collaboratively.

Previous workshop participants have said: “Teacher was delightful”, “Thank you for such an interesting and eye opening day”, “We covered everything in a logical methodical way, to be able to create a piece by the end, excellent communication throughout.” “Knowledgeable, clear, enthusiastic teacher, what more could you need!”
