weave it your way – Scarf edition
What's the deal?
Alrighty so you have attended our floor loom weaving workshop and bloody loved it! And want to dive a little deeper…
This workshop is ideal for developing a well rounded understanding of how the loom mechanically works and the endless possibilities.
Maybe you are thinking about joing the membership programme or even thinking about buying a floor loom yourself!
We are making a scarf! Winter comes but every other way in London – be prepared!
Where do I start?
Welcome! Lets get started! We will outline what the day will look like and make a start.
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.
Ok so now what?
Right so now that the juices are flowing, I will help you measure approximately 100 individual threads each measuring 2 mts long using the warping frame.
Once measured, you will thread it into the ‘inside set’ then we will roll the warp into the loom together.
It’s now ready to weave!
How big will my scarf be?
Scarf size dude!The width of the cloth will be approximately 25cm wide and somewhere around 1.5 mts long when it is completed with tassels, this really depends on your speedy weaving!
You are most welcome to bring any fibres or handspun yarns you have about your house to use too, this makes the scarf extra special.
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 an 8 hour, full day workshop and is available Wednesday – Saturday. Although happy to chat about what works for you.
Get in touch for a blissful day of weaving in the studio.
