What's included?

Drinks and cake is included, lunch isnt, although there is a great cafe over the road. You are welcome to bring along a packed lunch.

The venue is John Archer Hall, 68 Upper Hill Street, Toxteth, L8 1YR at the studio of
Emma Summerscales. Check out her Facebook page 

We can provide you a rigid heddle loom, or if you have one that you're struggling to get the hang of, bring it on the day - learn to weave on your own loom! You could alternatively purchase a loom from us and we will bring it on the day and we can put it together for you.

We will be using larger looms so that we can have a big beautiful piece at the end. You will learn to weave using different techniques, so you could use it as a sample piece, or if you wanted to make something to show off, we can do that too!

    Thank you so much for such an enjoyable two day course on learning how to weave. As a complete beginner, I was daunted by what I had always perceived as a difficult craft to master. However, the relaxed atmosphere of the class made it easy to learn with no pressure to keep up with the rest of the group.

    Starting with a brief introduction to the terminology and the different types of rigid heddle looms, we immediately set to warping the looms and by the end of day one, had already started to weave. You gave clear instructions and built confidence in an unobtrusive manner and I ended the course with a beautiful piece of tactile work show-piecing many different patterns in the weave.

    Learnt so much in the two days, going through the whole process, including warping up. I enjoyed experimenting with different textures and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to others.
