Weekend Weave Workshop - EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT for 2021
These classes focus on weaving a fabric length, this can be a finished wearable scarf piece or a series of samples where you explore differing weaving structures using a common warp.
Students will be led through the weaving process; with yarn types being discussed from a choice of merino, shetland and cheviot, before warping begins on a warping mill, with instructions given on how to dress a 4-shaft Ashford table loom. Once the loom has been dressed, and after consultation with James, you can base your finished piece on a range of samples and weave notes supplied.
Ranging from straight draft for beginners, pointed draft for intermediate and overshot constructions for the more advanced or confident students, all with the help and guidance of your tutor James Donald, so no experience necessary.
With a limit of 4 students, you will leave the weekend course with an understanding of cloth construction and finishing processes.
Due to the advanced nature of the table looms being used students can take away the looms and finish their woven project in their own time and return the looms at a pre agreed time. A follow up e mail will be sent the following to week to go over how one completes your project.
