Enjoy adventures in weaving! Beginners will design and weave a scarf on a 4 shaft table loom. Intermediate weavers will go through a series of experimental exercises on and off loom, tailored to expand their design sense using colour and texture in weaving.

Course outline

Beginner students

  • Learn to design and wind a warp, set up a loom, understand basic weave structures and complete weaving a scarf.
  • understand basic 4 shaft weave structures, yarn technology and the workings of the loom.

Intermediate students

  • learn alternative ways to design with colour and texture applied to weaving, expanding your knowledge and confidence in designing for weaving.
  • think outside the box and come away with a ‘library’ of inspirational samples!

Throughout the course, textiles will be discussed using examples from varied sources. We will use materials from the workshop but you are welcome to bring additional yarns/materials of your own choice.
