This course is aimed at those who are complete beginners or for those who may have some experience weaving on a peg loom or rigid heddle loom but are keen to develop their skills.

The looms will be set up and warped giving more time to concentrate on weaving. For the first 4 weeks you will rotate around the looms, exploring different weave patterns whilst learning about your loom. The final weeks will be dedicated to weaving your own final project, this could be a table runner or cushion cover for example.

You will receive 1 to 1 help and support each week as well as group teaching and demonstrations resulting in you taking away your own range of samples as well as a completed final project.

The course will run every Friday for 6 weeks from the 5th November at 10am-1pm.

Price: £255 + £5pw material charge payable to the tutor in cash for weeks 1 – 3. Pay as you use materials in weeks 5 and 6 to finish final piece.Call us on 0113 2563239 or come into the Gallery if you’d prefer to pay for the course in two instalments.

Things to bring

Yourselves, ideas, a packed lunch (there are also places to buy lunch in the mill and on Farsley Town Street).
