Trendily bohemian, the ancient craft of Weaving is now all the rage!

We are therefore very excited to be hosting our Beginners/Improvers Tapestry Weaving Course at The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium run by our talented and experienced Weaving teacher Hilary Charlesworth - who recently appeared on TV with Kirstie Allsop.
Kirstie said "She's the real deal, an artisan who adores her craft and has been developing it for more than 27years!"

This weaving course is suitable for:

  • Those that are completely new to weaving or have just dabbled
  • Or those that have already had a go and would like to move on a bit with tapestry weaving.
Hilary is great at letting everyone work at their own pace, so you shouldn't worry about your skill level. If you are ready to learn more - you CAN!

Using a simple frame loom (provided unless you own one that's the same already) you will start to create a lovely wallhanging using a variety of yarns and wools (all provided). You will learn to warp up the loom, plus all the basic stitches of woven tapestry, including hatching and sumac, plus some 3D effects such as tufting and tassles etc if you want to include them! A good choice of colours will be available.

Please note that our 40cm x 30cm frame loom (pictured) is included in the course fee online and you will be working on this loom. If you don't finish your weaving in the day, you will be able take the loom home with your piece still attached.
**If you have bought one of these looms from us already (or something the same size and extremely similar) and are happy to bring it along and use it, then we can arrange for £15 to be subtracted from this course price. In this instance you will need to book with us over the phone and not online so please call us on 01306 898144 and speak with a member of staff. Please note however, that different sized looms and more complex looms cannot be accomodated on this course, - it needs to be the same!

Maximum students per course is 10 and all courses run from 10am - 4pm.
This is an ADULT course for age 16+ (but children age 11+ may attend if accompanied by a paying adult who is willing to help them a little.)

The cost for this weaving course is £95.00 including loom and £80 excluding loom.

All weaving course materials are provided including:
  • Loom and Accessories (if paying £95)
  • Wools, Yarns and wooltops etc.
  • Drinks, Refreshments and terribly British afternoon tea and cake!
  • Course Notes
  • 10% discount voucher for The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium
