Learn the simple and satisfying art of weaving on one of our floor looms here at Make Town.

 

What will I learn?

The class starts with a brief introductory to the loom and its anatomy. We will chat about the fibres and yarns available in the studio and different ways to use them in your weaving.

You will quickly zone out and relax into the repetitive and gentle motions and going back and forth, creating shapes and  textures for your piece of handmade cloth.

One, two, three

The floor looms in the studio are designed and made in Japan, and are truly beautiful. You will enjoy using them very much!

The difficult process of setting up the loom will have been done for you with 100% cotton warp in a selection of colours. So you can enjoy weaving almost immediately.

During this workshop you will use both your hands and your feet in a rhythmic pattern, so you will feel a whole body connection. You will be peaceful, reflective, inspired and you will leave the studio relaxed, content and nourished.

Look at me!

Nearing the end of the workshop, your piece of cloth will be cut from the loom and you will tie up the tails at the beginning and end of your cloth, creating a row of tassels.

You will now have created a beautiful piece of handmade fabric that you can hang proudly or use it to make something awesome!

My kids just love this place... if you want a relaxing, creative and cool place to hang out on a cold a Saturday afternoon doing a spot of weaving then this is it. Brooke is amazing, warm, considerate and with brilliant advice for sewing and other crafty activities. I sort of want to keep it secret so I can enjoy it whenever I want! Xx

Your call baby! If I had  dollar for every person that said, “I wish I booked for longer!”  I would have a lot of coins for the pokies.
