Questions?

What experience do I need?

Not alot. You need to have attended the ‘Freestyle Weaving’ at least once. That’s it!

Can I change my booking?

Not for this one. You are welcome to log into your account and cancel your booking for a full refund. You have up to 7 days before the start date to do this. After this period, all bookings are final.

We are unable to reschedule bookings due to the capabilities of our system. Soz about it x

Please ensure you can make both sessions before confirming.

What patterns can we make?

We have a few up our sleeve. We have a wonderful booklet, outlining different patterns that are easily achieved on our looms, with some samples in the studio. We can advise on basic repetitions or challenging patterns that require more concentration based on your previous experience and skill level.

Can I make a different sized piece?

Lets walk before we run. We have 2 different sizes of cloth to make. Scarf length approx 30cm x 200cm or enough cloth to make 1 cushion or 2 cushion fronts 45cm x 100cm. Both of these options ensure you will finish in the 2 sessions.

Then you are very welcome to become a MT Member and ‘Rent an Inside Set’ once you have completed this workshop and make whatever sized piece you like.

What if I do not finish my weaving in time?

You will. But in the unlikely event that you do not finish your work, we may be able to keep your piece to be completed ASAP. This is dependant on available equipment and scheduling which will be discussed at the end of your second session. No guarantees i’m afraid.
