About this Event
An introduction into hand weaving. This workshop is a perfect place to start if you’re a beginner or want a refresher course of the basics.
Within this price, you will get to keep your very own loom! The frame looms are designed and made in Liverpool, from laser cut from 6 ply birch and a bit bigger than A4 in size (Looms sold separately for £42). The frame comes with a needle, comb and stand. Also included are 10 luxurious, hand tied yarn bundles to weave along with Kirsty. Each pack will also contain instructions, although she’ll be virtually on hand to guide you through the weaving process.
Over two hours, Kirsty will demonstrate thread by thread how to set up a frame loom and how to accomplish different woven techniques. You will then be able to try these patterns out for yourself, weaving with a variety of different textural and colourful yarns to create a beautiful piece of handwoven cloth, to turn into a small wall hanging, a table piece for your home, or just keep as a fabulous bit of weaving!
Whether you produce a traditional or contemporary design, you will get to keep your very own handwoven fabric. Kirsty will be on hand to answer questions for all your weaving needs and with 10 years experience in the field, her expertise really bring her workshops to life!
PLEASE NOTE: KIRSTY PACKS ALL EQUIPMENT WEARING FULL PPE AND LEAVES A 48 HOUR GAP BEFORE POSTAGE. ALL PACKAGES ARE SANITISED.
