Here’s a wonderful weekend of weaving using a body-tensioned rigid-heddle loom. The simplicity of this loom lends itself to both weaving beginners and weave 'experimenters'. 

Using British wools in their natural tones with a range of dyed wool and other natural fibre yarns, textile designer and hand-weaver Rebecca Connolly introduces you to all the techniques to produce a gorgeous creative sampler 18cm wide and up to 1m in length! Your second warp will be designed by you, to create an individual woven piece - this might be a wall hanging, a neck wrap/cowl, decorative edging for a cushion, or simply a length of woven cloth which you will sew into something useful! You will be shown how to design and make a warp, set the spacing correctly, thread-up and tension your loom; these skills are universal across any types of weaving and loom. All materials and equipment will be provided.
