Weaving Taster Session with Agnis Smallwood

14th May 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Ever wondered what it would be like to weave on a dobby loom? Over the Threads Textile Festival weekend, you could have the opportunity to weave on the gorgeous looms at Sunny Bank Mills.

You will be part of a small class, giving plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive 1 to 1 support throughout the workshop!

We will provide all materials and equipment. Spaces are very limited, so booking is essential!
