The Oxford Frame Loom is the most practical weaving frame loom on the market. Designed for beginner and advanced weavers, this frame loom helps you to discover your weaving style by accessing the unique design features at each stage of your development as a weaver. From basic frame loom weaving to double-cloth hand-weaving, this frame loom has it all!

The most unique frame loom design on the market!

Our new frame loom design aims to bridge the gap between beginner and advanced weavers. Its unique design has features that enable beginner weavers to quickly and easily set up a warp, practice basic weaving techniques and develop their skill set by weaving on a smaller, portable frame loom. But once the student is ready to progress to more complicated weaving patterns, structures and projects (usually only possible on a table or floor loom), The Oxford Frame Loom comes into its own.

Weavers using The Oxford Frame Loom can weave longer projects, wider projects and double-sided projects. As their skills progress and they begin to experiment, weavers can create double-cloth fabric, add in extra warps to create variety for their designs and numerous other more advanced and experimental designs usually only possible on larger, more expensive and complex looms.

Designed by Cassandra Smith, a professional textile designer with a background in engineering and trained as a hand-weaver at Central Saint Martins, The Oxford Frame Loom is the culmination of her experiences as a weave student, a professional weaver working in the textile design industry, textiles educator and frequent traveller.

The Oxford Frame Loom was designed to help weavers to continue exploring their love of this craft by creating a versatile and adaptable loom without investing large sums of money on looms you may not want or need.

  • Heddle Bars are reversible and can be flipped over on the reverse to raise the face of the woven project above the side frames for easier weaving when needed
  • Smooth wood surface avoids snagging yarns
  • Heddle bar design ensures they sit snugly in the channels on the side frames to maintain even warp tension and maintains a square shape when weaving
  • Easy to loosen and remove wing nuts when adjusting or re-positioning the Heddle Bars
  • A long channel helps to re-position the Heddle Bar for smaller projects or when adding a third Heddle bar
