Rebecca guides you through the basics of weave technique and pattern design; transferable skills relevant to all types and sizes of weaving looms.

You will be encouraged to experiment with a wide range of yarn colours, textures and fibres with a bias towards British Wool and Natural Dyed colour used in Rebecca’s own practice. Feel free to bring any characterful yarn you have been saving for something special.

Designing and making warps, threading and tensioning are demonstrated with the opportunity for students to setup a loom themselves.  

The sampler you create is yours to take home - to enjoy as a hanging, to embellish a garment or with some simple stitching made into a pouch for… whatever you need one for!  Some may also have a ‘weave-in-progress’ on their loom to complete at their leisure.
