  • Sunday 30th June: 2pm - 5pm

    Here it is! The third class in a series of 3 workshops by Clara Peggoty for Tribe! As always spaces are very limited and demand is high so don't leave it too long to book!

    WEAVING WORKSHOP 3 – “A Step Further”!

    In this class we'll be warping the looms in a similar way to the previous two classes, but with an emphasis on creating a warp-based pattern.

    We will be creating bespoke sampler placemats incorporating several different styles of pick-up patterns and colourwork, such as:

    · Basic plaid pattern
    · Houndstooth plaid
    · Weft Floats
    · Warp Floats

    If time allows, we shall also look at how to hand-twist the fringe on a piece of woven work.

    Ideally, you should bring along at least two different colours but, as ever, you will be able to experiment with more than two colours and different weights of yarn during the class.

    We will be using 16” Ashford Rigid Heddle looms, which are provided for your use, but feel free to bring your own if you wish to continue working on your piece at home. 

    Experts will be at hand to help with yarn and colour selection.

  • Class Duration:
    3 hour class, 2pm - 5pm. Please arrive at least 20 mins before the first class to choose your yarn (so we can wind it for you. Or better still, on a pre-class day, so we don't rush your choice.

    Prior Experience:
    Warping and other basic techniques, as taught in Workshop 1

    Class Materials: 
    Ideally, you should bring along at least two different colours but, as ever, you will be able to experiment with more than two colours and different weights of yarn during the class.

    We will be using 16” Ashford Rigid Heddle looms, which are provided for your use, but feel free to bring your own if you wish to continue working on your piece at home.

    Other:
    Your Ashford loom will be available to purchase at a discounted price after the workshop, should you so wish.

    We are sorry but we cannot offer refunds on classes if you are unable to attend for whatever reason, unless we are able to refill your spot.

  • About the Teacher:


    I bought my first Rigid Heddle Loom some years ago, and have never looked back!  I have a variety of looms at home, but am usually found working on my 48” rigid heddle creating Alchemy Blankets, which are made to commission from people’s leftover yarn and special “memory” yarns. 

    The magic of the weaving leftover yarns together never fails to amaze and mystify me, hence the name I have given to these blankets.

    I love to weave with mixed weights and textures, including roving, chunky yarn, lace-weight yarn and even strips of ribbon and pompoms, and I often make these pieces into bags or project bags for knitting. 

    Although I have given some thought to moving to a floor loom, I honestly believe that I can weave every type of thing I could wish for on an honest, simple rigid heddle loom. And I can show you how too!
