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.

Here are some examples of other topics I can cover:

Half day Workshops:

  • Silk spinning on a drop spindle

    Mini coiled baskets.

  • Setting up a ‘knitters loom or a rigid heddle loom’ – 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, which usually covers materials. [9.30-1 or 1.30-5](If you are interested, please specify a preferred time – morning / afternoon / evening.)

‘Studio Days’ – 1 or 2 days, for 1 or 2 people. The looms will be ready to go, and all materials provided. This is basically a session for beginners to try out weaving.

  • Art / Inspirational /Creative Weaving - this can be on a loom, tapestry frame or other methods. Maybe weaving with unusual  or recycled materials.
  • Warping a loom. Bring your table loom, and yarns, and I can help you set it up.
  • Weave a small item, [ie a bag].
  • Dyeing yarns I can work with synthetic or natural dyes.
    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. As this will be woven using expensive yarns, including my own hand dyed in both warp and weft there is an additional materials charge. However, you could opt to provide your own weft yarns which would keep the cost down.

  • Tapestry weaving for beginners - bring your own frame, or for a small charge I can sell or lend one. Run as a course – ie 4 half day sessions to allow you time to work at home. Initial half day £35 [additional charge for frame], thereafter £25 per session.
  • Equipment is available for use during tuition sessions, although you may prefer to bring your own.
    Dates to suit.
