One to One Weaving Session
One to One Weaving Session
"Thank you for such a dreamy afternoon in your beautiful home - could have happily sat in your kitchen for hours longer! Loved meeting you and learning your weaving ways - so pleased to have finally got going and I can see this might become a bit of an obsession! " Emma (one to one weaving student)
This one to one session will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful nature inspired woven wall hanging on a frame loom. You will learn how to warp up a loom and gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as rya, looping and pattern making. You will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage and natural yarns to create texture and colour. I will guide you in using elements and scenes from the natural world to inspire your wall hanging. By the end of the session you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.
The session is designed for both beginner weavers and also those wishing to develop their weaving style .
The session will be completely personalised to enable you to go at whatever pace suits you, and to explore this wonderful craft in a relaxed way. The session will last two hours.
All materials and equipment will be provided. You will receive your own handmade loom, weaving tools and weaving guide to take home with you to continue your weaving journey.
I will provide plenty of inspirational material to help you design your weave but if you have a particular scene or landscape you would like to capture, please bring along a picture.
If you have already purchased one of my weaving kits (or if you have your own loom and equipment), please contact me before purchasing for a code to enable you to claim £20 off the one to one session.
Location and details
The session will be held at my home near Thornbury in South Gloucestershire, at a time to suit you, or at my sister’s home in Peckham Rye. I am able to provide sessions on certain days and evenings during the week, and on some weekend dates too. My availability for London one to one’s is more limited so please do get in touch to discuss before booking.
I may be able to provide a one to one session at other locations such as in central London, if that suits you better. Please get in touch if that is of interest to you and I will try to accommodate it!
From central London, the best way to reach my home is to take a direct overground train from London Bridge, Cannon Street or Charing Cross to Hither Green. The journey will take approximately 20 minutes. My home is a 5 minute walk from the station.
If you choose to drive, free parking is available in the streets around my home during the weekend, and paid parking during the week.
Please do let me know if you require any further information, or advice for getting here!
I look forward to meeting you!
