About the Event

If you have ever thought you would like to learn to weave, this is the workshop for you!  The Rigid Heddle loom enables beginners to produce beautiful cloth on a simple loom over a short learning program.  Read to the end for the link to book your place.

Our tutor, Eva Ruzicka, is very experienced using a rigid heddle loom and is keen to see new weavers experience the joy of creating lovely fabric.  She will guide you through the steps involved from getting to know the loom and setting it up to weaving your first sample of cloth, ready to start a simple project, such as a scarf.

Looms and full notes will be provided for this workshop, which is conducted on Saturday 17th August.  Once your booking is confirmed you will be sent course requirements.  Please make sure you read our "Terms and Conditions" when you book for this program, as no refunds or 'makeup' classes outside the workshop will be given should you not attend.

On the day of the classes, the workshop room will be open 15 minutes beforehand only - that is, at 8:45am - as the area needs to be set up that morning for this workshop.  Tea and coffee will be provided.
