About this course

This Weaving course will as it states in title will introduce you to the art of weaving on a loom. You will follow a simple weaving plan so you can understand what is involved in the craft and start to watch how a design turns into woven piece of fabric. You will start to see how colour works on a warp and a weft and experience the hands on development of the weave before enrolling on a longer course to create a design of your own. You will use a table loom to create your first piece of woven fabric.

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/notebook to record goals/ideas, processes and progress. There will be one to one guidance, group critiques and self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated for the course.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

Scissors, tape measure, ruler and note pad but most weaving equipment is provided. Apart from pens and a note pad please do not buy books or equipment before the start of the course. Details will be discussed at the first session or if necessary your tutor will send a list a week before the course starts. You need to purchase yarns for your own projects the tutor will talk you through how to do this.

What can I do next?
