Description

Your tutor, Jan, will have her Ashford table top four shaft looms all warped up ready for you to weave a scarf width & length. She will provide patterns, lots of coloured yarn to enjoy a day weaving. This weaving is both highly addictive and therapeutic with the repetitive action of firing the shuttle back & forth.

The class is suitable for those totally new to weaving as well as those wishing to hone their skills on pattern reading

Looms will be set up and ready to go.
