Weaving in a Day

11th December 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Spend a day learning to weave on one of our looms!

This workshop is perfect for those who would like to explore weaving in a fun workshop and produce an outcome within the day. You will have the freedom to weave your own small piece of fabric, it could be for the front of a cushion cover, a folded purse, placemats or a table runner to name just a few ideas, the choice is yours. These days are aimed at those who are keen to have a go but maybe don’t want to learn too much technical information (yet!)

They are a fun introduction to the basics of weaving on a loom whilst also producing your own unique piece of work, selecting from a range of yarns to create your own bespoke design. The looms will be set up ready, meaning you get to enjoy a whole day just weaving. Please note that there won’t be time within the workshop to sew up your weaving into a cushion cover for example- we will be concentrating on the weaving within the workshop.

You will be in a small class, giving plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive 1 to 1support throughout the workshop as well as watching group demonstrations.

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!), materials and equipment.
