Private Workshop: Introduction to Handweaving Workshop
Learn to weave on a traditional hand loom using the equipment, tools, materials and processes necessary to create handwoven textiles in our one-to-one, Private Introduction to Handweaving workshop.
In this beginner handweaving workshop students will begin with the basics of handweaving. From planning a warp to designing and weaving their first handwoven sample, students will learn each step in the weaving process.
In this full day workshop, students will be shown how to wind the warp, dress the loom, thread the heddles, reed and tie on the warp. The focus will be on setting up a narrow sample warp for them to weave their very first handwoven sample. They will be taught simple patterns and will experiment with a variety of materials. You will carry out each of these steps with our guidance and be given notes to take home. Whatever fabric is woven is yours to keep.
Please note: It is suggested that students complete the Level 1: Introduction to Weaving Workshop, as you will benefit from the knowledge learned in this workshop to set up your loom more independently.
