Weaving workshop with Sally Hampson – “The Weaving Shed at Atelier”
Weaving Weekends £145 (+£5 toward all the wool your need)
October 10th-11th or October 17th-18th or October 24th-25th
Come and learn to weave, it is just what you need right now. It will be lovely to see you. The workshops will include learning how the loom works and all the traditional 4 shaft weaves, from Tabby, Twills to Hopsack. The looms will be set up for you in advance with different colours and textures, to choose from, wool from Shetland and Donegal, lambswool and alpaca for you to weave with, creating beautiful samples or a scarf to take home!
Because of the current situation there will be 6 places, which means there will be plenty of space. Atelier is kept very clean we will like to ask you all to either wear a mask or a plastic visor.
The weekend workshops will offer you the opportunity to learn to weave.
10.30 – 12.30 – Introduction to the loom and how it works. Start to weave and understand all the basic patterns on a 4 shaft loom.
