I run courses in tapestry weaving and shafted loom weaving for beginners and improvers.
I run tapestry weaving courses for 2 students in my studio, or for groups of up to 8 at other venues. A 1-day beginners workshop covers the basics:
Dates and times for courses can be flexible to suit the attendees. I supply yarns for use in these workshops at nominal cost. If you don't have a tapestry frame these are available to purchase at £15 each.
A beginners course, for individual students, usually runs over 3 or 4 half day sessions and covers:
For the first piece of weaving we use rug wools to make a bag fabric in a broken twill pattern with three different colours.
Dates and times for courses can be flexible to suit the attendee. For students who don't own looms, a table loom and other weaving equipment is available to hire for a small charge.
Due to the limited space in my studio in Poole, Dorset courses there are limited to one or two students. Further private tuition is also available on an hourly basis. From time to time I run workshops at other venues, details of which will be shown on my home page.
Please contact me for further information or to enquire about possible dates.
