Learn to Weave

from modern frame loom weaving to multishaft looms

There's nothing more magical than creating your own cloth. We are sharing our passion for handcrafted colour in weaving and invite you join us.

Essential Weaving

explore the fundamentals

The School of SweetGeorgia is focused on creating new weavers who love colour! Before we can begin mixing and blending yarns and colours in handwoven cloth, we need to learn how weaving works and gain a fundamental understanding of some basic weaving concepts.

There is an essential body of knowledge in weaving that is helpful to know, regardless of what equipment you are using to weave that cloth. This workshop is an overview of the essential concepts so that you can progress towards weaving on a rigid heddle loom, a multi-shaft loom, or whatever loom you choose to work with. We explore looms and tools, yarn for weaving, calculating and winding warps, and the fundamental movements of weaving.

In the "Rigid Heddle Weaving Basics" workshop, we introduce you to weaving with a rigid heddle loom. This little loom is quite a powerful and versatile piece of equipment and can help you to weave beautiful cloth that could be used for everything from scarves and shawls to textiles for the home.

Learn two different ways to warp your rigid heddle loom and discover how quick and easy it can be to weave. We work through step-by-step to weave two colourful scarves.
