Colour and Weave

Colour and Weave

Instructor:

Amanda Wood

Class Description:

If you have ever wanted to try weaving, then this is the workshop for you. For new weavers and those that have woven before, this project based class will tackle the complex looking, but actually very straightforward, colour and weave stripe patterning.

Students will work on a pre-warped Ashford SampleIt loom while Amanda walks you through basic weaving techniques. These techniques will include weaving vocabulary and finishing options for your woven scarf. Students who have woven before will learn some more intermediate colour and weave techniques.

Over the course of two sessions you’ll make a beautiful scarf featuring GOTS certified Venne cottolin in a palette similar to the ones shown in the sample. A small class size means there will be lots of one on one to make sure everyone completes their work.

No previous weaving experience necessary!
