The looms will be set up for you in advance, with different colours and textures for you to choose from.
The workshop includes learning how the loom works and all the traditional weaves, such as Herringbone, Twills and Hopsack, experimenting with your own colours and textures.
The yarns will be a wonderful collection of Shetland, Jacob, Welsh Black and Lambs wool.
You can choose either to weave a collection of samples or weave your own scarf/neck-warmer.
