Would you love to weave using naturally dyed yarn? This option is going to suit you down to the ground.
Weave your own unique Scarf using gorgeous naturally hand-dyed yarns on this weaving workshop
On the course you will learn:
- how to decide which yarn suits which heddle
- which yarn is suitable to weave with
- how to work out how much yarn you will need for your project
Complete beginners are welcome in this Weave a Scarf Workshop where you will use rigid heddle looms to weave on. You will have a choice of a themed set of naturally dyed yarns to use on the day. Pick from one of the choices in the images above
The process to create these yarns takes more time, in some cases the dyes are foraged, in other cases they are dyed from powders.
You're welcome to bring along any textured yarns or ribbons to add to your work.
We teach in different venues so book your place by paying for the course. We will then send you a confirmation of your booking and ask which date you would like to come to.
Then you'll receive a choice of yarns to choose for your warp and on the day there will be loads of different yarns, solid colours, semi-solids, speckles, etc. for you to tuck in to.
The day will run from 10-4

Hare Hill Barn -
Hare Hill is a small traditional Lakeland hill farm which can be traced back to the early 18th Century. Although the house has earlier origins, it was rebuilt in 1907. The farmbuildings date from the late 19th Century, since when they have remained unchanged.
Hare Hill is currently run as a sheepholding for approximately 140 Swaledale ewes, and has 30 acres of wildflower meadows cut in the summer for hay, and supporting a large population of skylarks. In the Second World War Hare Hill was used as a training farm for the Womens’ Land Army.
In 2006, Julian and Vanda Lambton bought the farm and have since embarked on a series of environmental projects, supported by a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, including woodland planting, creation of orchards and a pond, wall and hedgerow restoration. The land is managed with minimal intervention to promote biodiversity. A happy bi-product of these projects is that we have a new population of hares breeding successfully on the farm, some of which are regularly seen around the barn
