Learn to Weave £55
This class is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning the basics of weaving on a lap loom.   The class will cover how to warp up a small lap or table loom including how to get the tension right. You will learn how to make tassels to give your wall hanging a simple fringe finish. It will cover various weaving techniques which Abby will talk you through step by step throughout the lesson. You will be encouraged to experiment with colours and textures using a selection of yarns and materials to create your piece. You will then be shown how to take your weave off the loom and get it ready to hang using a piece of doweling which will give your wall hanging a perfect finish.

All materials will be provided and you will get to go home with one small but wonderful weave ready to hang on your wall.  Tutor:  Abby Monroe
