10.00am – 4.00pm (Friday & Saturday)
12noon – 5.00pm (Sunday)

Cost: N10,000 only.

Three day introductory workshop on design, planning, preparation and weaving on a floor loom. Participants will learn basic weave design on paper, plan, make a warp and learn how to set up a floor loom for weaving. There will approx one day of weaving at the end of the workshop.

The weave project will involve selecting a combination of yarn colours, planning and making a warp and then once the loom is prepared there is the choice to ‘sample’ a variety of weave structures and or weft colour combinations, or to weave a larger sample in one design. Cotton & wool yarns will be used in a structure and quality typical of a classic asooke & tweed respectively.

Previous students are warmly welcomed back to develop their skills and are encouraged to contact me to discuss a new project to work on in the workshop.
