Weaving Workshop 2, Sunday 21st July

  • Sunday 21st July: 2pm - 5pm

    The much awaited second class in a series of 3 workshops by Clara Peggoty for Tribe! Workshop 1 sold out in a matter of hours and spaces are very limited so don't leave it too long to book!

    WEAVING WORKSHOP 2 – “A Bit of Texture”!

    In this workshop we’ll be exploring the joy of mixed weft weaving, using a variety of fibre preparations including different weights of yarn, wool roving, ribbon and fabric.  There may even be some pompoms!  

    The warping of the rigid heddle looms will be based on the techniques learnt in Workshop 1, but instead of creating a Project Bag, this time we will create a beautiful sampler piece of mixed-media wall-art to be hung in pride of place at home!

    Please bring a piece of wooden dowel or similar (I frequently use tree twigs, bamboo or driftwood) on which to hang your piece of masterpiece. (Around 16” long would be optimum, but you can always trim it when you get home.)

    We will be using 16” Ashford Rigid Heddle looms, which are provided for your use.  We will also supply the Mixed Media (roving, etc) as well as the "weaving yarn" for the warps for this class (hence the slightly higher workshop price). You should bring your yarn scraps and odds and ends to use in your weaving.

    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.

  • 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: 
    The Loom will be provided for your use. We will also supply the Mixed Media (roving, etc) as well as the "weaving yarn" for the warps for this class (hence the slightly higher workshop price).

    You should bring your yarn scraps and odds and ends to use in your weaving.
     All available to purchase in store too.

    Please also bring a piece of wooden dowel or similar (I frequently use tree twigs, bamboo or driftwood) on which to hang your piece of masterpiece. (Around 16” long would be optimum, but you can always trim it when you get 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!
