Description

Weave your own unique Scarf using gorgeous hand dyed yarns.

Join Jessamy and Sofia as they introduce you to the addictive world of weaving.

Complete beginners are welcome on this Workshop where you will use rigid heddle looms to weave on.  You can even choose which colours you’d like us to warp your loom with so you can get weaving on the day

You’re welcome to bring along any textured yarns or ribbons to add to your work but there will be plenty of choice of yarns and colours if you don’t

When you book you will receive a confirmation of your booking and we’ll ask you which date you’d like to come along too. 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.

    I have been lucky enough to take a number of workshops with Lazy Kate Textiles including beginners spinning, colour confidence, dyeing and weaving. All workshops have been very well organised with excellent resources. Cathy is a fantastic and thoughtful teacher who explains things really well and anticipates the things people commonly find difficult. She is very patient and encouraging. Although the workshops have been with many different people, the groups are always the perfect size – not too big to ensure there is individual help but big enough so that it’s a lovely social time too.
    I would highly recommend these workshop

    So in between lockdowns etc I did a workshop held at the tea rooms, it was small and I felt safe. I’ve never done weaving before and it was explained very thoroughly. Jess and Sofia were very professional but friendly and helpful! I produced a lovely scarf. Definitely would recommend anyone to have a go as it’s very relaxing and enjoyable. Also it was an opportunity to meet some new people. Thanks

      Thank you Joanne, that’s wonderful to hear. We’re glad you enjoyed it.

    I’ve had quite a few workshop sessions with Cathy; spinning, weaving and dyeing including several 121 sessions, 1 over zoom to sort out my tension when spinning. Cathy and her team have been amazing; kind, calm in the face of some setbacks, very enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgable. I have since had several 121 follow up sessions to sort out the warping up of my Rigid Heddle loom. I cannot recommend Lazy Kate Textiles too highly. The staff are professional and thoughtful.

    I was taught to spin by Cathy, and went back for a lesson on plying. She was very patient and let me go at my own pace. I’ve never looked back. Great skill to have. Thank you

    The Weave a Scarf workshop at Black Sheep Wools was excellent. Cathy’s explanations and instruction were clear and helpful and her wools that we worked with were beautiful. I am delighted with my finished scarf and have definitely been inspired to continue weaving. A great venue, too. Many thanks, Cathy and Jessamy.
