This is the perfect follow on workshop from the floor loom class, so have that under your belt before tackling this one.

The warp, weft and weave workshop is for keen weavers to learn the basic set up for weaving.

Enjoy the entire process from making your own colourful warp, dressing the loom and weaving a scarf.

Where do I start?

We will start by chatting about the steps involved for the day, then step by step will take you from the very beginning to a woven scarf.

With coloured pens and piece of paper, you will scribble your ideas and designs down, and from your drawings we can decide which yarns will be suitable for your warp.

You can go for subtle neutral tones or every colour of the rainbow for your scarf.

How long is a piece of string?

You will measure approximately 100 individual threads each measuring 2 mts long using the warping frame.

Once measured, you will remove your warp from the frame and thread it into the loom using specifically designed equipment to make this process as smooth as possible.

We will roll the warp into the loom together, and then it will be ready for you to sit down to weave until you run out of energy, or warp. Whatever comes first.

Slow and steady wins the race

The width of the cloth will be approximately 25cm wide and 1.5 mts long when it is completed. This is about the dimensions of a scarf, so you will be able to wear your amazing handiwork home.

You are most welcome to bring any yarns you have about your house to use too.

 

Endless possibilities

This workshop is ideal for developing a well rounded understanding of how the loom mechanically works and the endless possibilities if you are thinking about buying a floor loom yourself.

The studio can accommodate only 1 person doing this workshop at a time, so you will get plenty of attention. 

These workshops need to be booked though our contact form. This is a full day workshop and is available to be booked Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

A scarf! Or a really skinny table runner? The finished piece will be approx 1.5mt long and 25cm wide plus tassels if you choose to keep them.

What if I don't finish?

You better! Most people will finish in the 8 hours easy. If you don’t we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

My back aches!

Mine too! There is actually an ailment called weaver’s bottom. As with any prolonged activity you will discover discomfort and aches after a while, we will show you some nifty stretches.
