Workshop update: Due to COVID 19 I cannot currently offer workshops, but if you are interested in the future please contact me and we can keep in touch.

Weaving and Dyeing workshops.

I offer workshops for small groups or on a one-to-one basis at home.

For some workshops I am able to come to another location.
If you are interested, please contact me: email is usually the easiest way to reach me.

Half day Workshops:

  • Silk spinning on a drop spindle

    Mini coiled baskets.

  • Setting up a ‘knitters loom or a rigid heddle loom’ – a demonstration on my own equipment – or bring your own loom and yarns and I can help you set it up.

Cost is £35 for a half day. [9.30-1 or 1.30-5](If you are interested, please specify a preferred time – morning / afternoon / evening.)Depending on the workshop, there may be an additional charge for materials.

‘Studio Weaving Days’ – 1 or 2 days, for up to 4 people. [up to 3 on table looms, or 4 on tapestry looms]
The looms will be ready to go, and all materials provided. This is basically a session for beginners to try out weaving. Possible options-

  • Art / Inspirational /Creative Weaving - Maybe weaving with unusual  or recycled materials.
  • Art weaving

    Other 1 day workshops:

  • Warping a table loom. Bring your table loom, and yarns, and I can help you set it up.
  • Dyeing yarns I can work with synthetic or natural dyes.
    One suggestion is, working with yarns, fibres and fabrics you can make your own co-ordinated ‘inspiration pack’

    £60 for a full day. If 2 come together for a 1 day workshop it will be £55 each.
    A 2 day workshop would normally cost £85 per person.

    I also run a 2 day workshop to weave a scarf. Once again, the loom will be ready warped using a hand-dyed pure wool warp in a colour-way of your choice.
    To get a pleasing result, this option uses luxury yarns, including my own hand dyed in both warp and weft so there is an additional materials charge. The basic fee for this workshop is £90 which includes the warp yarn, and a further charge, worked out at the start of the course depending on weft yarns chosen.
    However, you could opt to provide your own weft yarns which would keep the cost to £90.

    A different option for this would be that you bring your own table loom, or rigid heddle loom, and own materials, and we design the scarf, and warp up together, and you finish weaving at home. Cost would be £85

    Bring your own frame, or I can supply one for £8. Run as a course – length of your choosing – ie 4 half day sessions, spaced to allow you time to work at home. Initial half day £40, with warp and some weft yarns provided, thereafter £25 per half day session.
