I also offer the following weaving experience workshops:
Freestyle Weaving – a half or full day workshop
Immerse yourself in a world of yarn colour and texture and discover the tranquil therapy of weaving. The looms will be threaded ready for you to start weaving and exploring yarn combinations and weave effects. All yarns provided, but you are welcome to bring any on your own.
Woven Landscape – half or a full day
Paint a landscape with yarn and create weaving inspired by your favourite landscapes.
Option to have a half day workshop with looms threaded ready to start weaving or a full day workshop where you learn to design a warp, thread your own loom and weave for the remainder of the day.
All yarns provided but you are welcome to bring any of your own and also bring photos of your favourite landscapes.
Weave a scarf in a day – a full day workshop
Design your scarf, thread your own loom and weave your own unique scarf to wear by the end of the day!
There is the option to provide own yarns, or to use those supplied or book onto a workshop I am running in collaboration with a yarn shop and purchase yarns from the shop.
Recycle – respin –reweave – half day workshop
A workshop all about reusing fabrics, creating your own yarns and cords and weaving them into something new!
You will have fun learning to spin using a drop spindle to transform old fabrics into yarn to make new things eg table mats, table runners or even rugs.
All equipment and materials provided, although you are welcome to bring any old fabric you may wish to recycle.
Prices and bookings
Mobile Weaving workshops for group bookings
I am happy to bring my mobile weave studio to you if you can get a group of between of 4 and 6 people together and you have a suitable space to run a session.
(The looms are not huge and 2 – 3 could easily fit on a 6ft / 2mt table. However, if you want learn to make a warp and thread up a loom then warp making requires a distance of around 6 ft /2 metres from the back of the loom – please get in touch to discuss the suitability of the space you have in mind )
A half day (2-3hr) session is from £20 per person and a full day (4 – 5hrs) is from £40 per person based on a minimum of 4 participants (max 6 participants per workshop)
I am based in Thornton, West Yorkshire and am prepared to travel around the north of England – I will charge for my travel @ 20p per mile round trip.
