Weave Together – Adult and Teenager

28th October 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


These workshops are for 1 adult and 1 teenager to attend together during Autumn half term week! You will work together to decide on a small project that you would both like to make throughout the day, for example, weaving a cushion cover.

You’ll be sharing a loom throughout the workshop and working collaboratively. Whilst one person is weaving the other will be choosing colours and winding pirns ready for the weaver. You will swap over throughout the session so you can both have time on the loom.

Agnis will guide you through the day, giving demonstrations as well as offering 1 to 1 support.

This workshop may be of interest to those who are undertaking their GCSE or A levels in Art/Design/Textiles or those who simply have a passion for making and crafting. Adults are expected to join in the workshop and work together on the project with their teenager.

There will be a maximum of 12 people in this workshop.

Please note when booking – you only need to book one place for the pair of you.


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.
