What will we cover?

Lucy will go through all the tools and materials you will need to create your weaving. You will learn how to warp up the loom, the basic weaving techniques for example tassels and tabby weave. If you are feeling adventurous we will cover soumak and loops. Lucy loves to weave with texture so there will be plenty of that. Finally, you will learn how to take your weave off your loom and to hang on a dowel.

How will I be taught?

You will be taught by Lucy in person, she will be weaving alongside you and will help with any tricky weaving questions you may have.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

No, none at all! This workshop is suitable for complete beginners.  Lucy will teach you all you need to know.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

All materials will be provided but if you have a specific colour palette or theme in mind please do bring any chunky wool you have available.

What will I take home with me?

You will have a beautiful hand-made woven hanging to adorn your walls.


Drinks and biscuits will be available
