You will have a choice of weft colours to choose from.

You will try out plain weave, colour and weave and 2/2, 3/1 twill structures.

The day will start off with an explanation of the loom and the basics of weaving. 

At the end of the day, you will take away your woven sample and notes that you can refer back to.

Maximum 3 participants per experience.

Tea, Coffee and Biscuits provided, but please bring along a packed lunch as we will break for 30 mins.
