Loom Testing Workshop

April 1 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Are you trying to figure out which loom is right for you? Then you need to join this workshop!

Spend the morning, learning the difference between looms and thinking through which loom might be most appropriate for developing your weaving further.

We will look at cardboard looms, simple frame looms, peg looms, rigid heddle looms, table looms and dobby looms. There will be an example of each of these looms to look at during the workshop.

There will also be the opportunity to carousel around the different looms and have a small experiment weaving on each one.

Maybe you have been considering buying a loom but don’t know which might be the most appropriate. Agnis will give you lots of expert tips and advice to consider when choosing which to buy!

PLEASE NOTE – you won’t leave the workshop with any samples of your weaving, this is purely and educational workshop.
