29th October 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
These workshops are aimed at those who have some experience of weaving already, you
may have attended our beginners weaving course, and are keen to be able to weave your
own short project but are not quite ready for going it all alone. The looms will be set up
with a neutral warp and will be ready for you to begin weaving your own project.
The session will begin with each person sharing their ideas for what they would like to
weave. Together with input from the group and guidance from Agnis, we will discuss and
make a plan for how each person will achieve their own outcome. Feel free to bring along
ideas jotted down on a piece of paper, photos, ideas for colours, sketchbooks etc to help
spark off the conversation. You will then begin weaving your final piece.
Agnis will provide support throughout the workshop to help translate your ideas into a
woven outcome. Please be realistic as to what you can achieve within the day.
Things to bring
Your own yarn (optional £5 charge to use wool from the mill), 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!) & equipment.
