    Wall Hanging Weaving

    November 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


    Weaving on a Small Handloom
    Starting with a basic handloom, we’ll be working with a variety of wool and other materials to create a beautiful hanging to take home. Learn how to set up your loom, get the right tension and understand the role of the warp thread as the backbone of your weave. Develop your techniques to weave the weft thread to create your patterns and design. Go at your own pace and take your loom home with you to keep and finish off your design, or start another one!

    (Suitable for beginners).

    Tea’s & coffees will be provided throughout the day but we encourage you to take your own lunch.


    This workshop costs £15 which is to be payed by cash or cheque at the Town Hall prior to the event. Please see the Enrol With Us section of the brochure for more info.
