We are SO excited to be able to offer this amazing, epic class, taught by the one and only Nicky Winterton, aka @clarapeggoty (instagram).
This is the first in a series of 4 workshops at Tribe. Spaces are very limited and sell out fast, so don't leave it too long to book!
In Workshop 1, as well as covering all the very necessary basics (technical loom stuff, warping, throwing and so on), you can also expect to create a piece of handwoven fabric of your very own design by the end of your 3 hours!
The goal for Workshop 1 is to make enough gorgeous, unique woven fabric to make your own useful and beautiful project bag.
For a small additional fee, The Little Grey Girl will transform your hand-woven fabric into a beautiful, zippered project bag.
We will be using 16” Ashford Rigid Heddle looms, which are provided for your use, so all you need is a couple of skeins of DK weight yarn (preferably pre-caked) and approximately 100g of leftover odds and ends of fingering weight/DK weight, and you’ll be set. We promise the magic of weaving will have you hooked!!!
The beauty of learning on this loom is that it's so easy and affordable for you to own your own, and continue creating after the workshops. Weaving with hand-dyed yarns, and mixed yarn weights and textures is a very unique and exciting experience.
We can also break up larger skeins to share in class from the whole selection available at Tribe Yarns!
Experts will be at hand to help with yarn and colour selection.
