Class Description:

You will work on your own beautiful, soft woven cloth that you can take home. This is a full day (6 hour) workshop with a 1.5hr lunch break in the middle of the day. The workshop demonstrates the effectiveness of using a hand-dyed or variegated yarn to make stunning woven cloth and is very much beginner-friendly. We'll have Ashford rigid heddle looms set up and ready to go at the start of class, you just need to select your skein of the beautiful hand-dyed Alpaca yarn from Liz Green Arts. Skills covered will include:

  • General weaving terminology
  • Weaving Plainweave (Tabby)
  • Neat Selvedges & avoiding draw-in or loops at edges
  • Posture & tips for avoiding strain 
  • Advancing the warp & getting the right tension
  • Tips for fixing or re-working ‘mistakes’
  • Direct Warping (for a rigid heddle loom)
