Weave a Wall Hanging
This course is designed for beginners who are completely new to weaving.
You will learn how to set up your loom with the warp threads, and a variety of simple techniques including the Basket, Twill and Soumack and how to create tassles. These can be used in a variety of combinations with almost anything that is weavable! The result is a beautiful textured and touchable weaving that will look stunning on any wall.
Please note there is an extra charge for your loom which you can buy from us for a pre-order price of £10 or we can advise where from.
Skills you will learn:
How to set up your loom
Different weaving techniques
How to introduce different types of wools
How to create tassles
What you will need:
There will be some wools, yarns and other textured materials to practice with, but we advise you bring some of your own, particularly if you would like to follow a certain colour scheme.
Aim to bring at least 4 different shades of wool/acrylic in a variety of weights: DK, Aran, Afgan, Chunky, Super chunky and Roving all very suitable. If you want to go even further you can use strips of material, hessian, velvet and denim.
We can provide you with a loom that is yours to keep for an additional £10.
