Weaving in a Day: Cushion Cover

25th October 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Spend a day learning to weave a cushion cover on a loom.

Weaving in a Day

For those of you who would like to explore weaving in a fun workshop, maybe with a friend. These days are aimed at those of you who are keen to have a go but maybe don’t want to take learn too much technical information (yet!)

10am – 4pm

Enjoy a day learning to weave. A fun introduction to the basics of weaving on a loom whilst also producing your own rectangular cushion cover top. The looms will be set up and warped for you ahead of the workshop, meaning that you get to enjoy a whole day just weaving. The course will enable you to weave sufficient fabric to either make, the front of a cushion cover, a full simple cushion or enough fabric to applique onto an existing cover. Please note that there will not be time within the workshop to complete your cushion cover – a nice project for when you are at home.

You will be in a small class, maximum of 6, giving you plenty of time to ask questions and receive 1 to 1 as well as group support throughout the workshop. You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of yarns, different thicknesses and colours to create your very own bespoke design.

Suitable for beginners .

Price: £75 (tea, coffee and home-made cake) Basic materials are included. Additional yarns will be available for purchase on the day.

Please bring your own packed lunch (or pop out to the Mill Kitchen or Grumpy’s – just around the corner)

Free parking, lift access to twisting gallery studios.
