Basics of Weaving

  • &hobbs The Forge Middle Street Shere UK (map)


This class is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning the basics of weaving on a lap loom. Weaving is a fast growing trend, is well known for its therapeutic tendencies and allows you to play with texture and colour culminating in the creation of your own wall hanging. Why not try a new craft for the new year!

The class will cover how to warp up a loom including how to get the tension right. You will learn how to make tassles to give your wall hanging a simple fringe finish. It will cover various weaving techniques which Lucy will talk you through step by step throughout the lesson. You will be encouraged to experiment with colours and textures using a selection of yarns and roving to create your piece. You will then be shown how to take your weave off the loom and get it ready to hang using a piece of doweling which will give your wall hanging a perfect finish.

All materials will be provided and you will get to go home with one small but wonderful weaving ready to hang on your wall. Classes are limited to 8 spaces so please be quick if you would like to book.

Lucy runs a craft and lifestyle blog that has been featured in many craft magazines including Mollie Makes which she has written tutorials for. She is a self taught weaver and crafter and is excited to pass on these skills to other makers.
