About

Weaving Workshop
This meditative frame loom workshop is a mini textile retreat, for those who wish to learn the craft of weaving in an inspiring and thoughtful setting. Students will learn the basics of weaving on a hand-held frame loom and the history of the art form in a conscious learning environment. The practice of weaving is slow, mindful and repetitive, and when this process is embraced it can be relaxing for the mind and body — even therapeutic.


Along with the weaving steps, students will also learn about different yarns and their uses, finishing techniques (how to complete your weaving after it's taken off the loom) and ideas for future textile designs. Not only this, but students will also be given the exciting opportunity to experience weave on a tabletop loom.
