WEAVING COURSES

Learn to weave your own scarves, shawls, and garments, as well as both decorative and functional items for your home. If you are new to weaving, we suggest starting with the Essential Weaving course and then moving to the Rigid Heddle, Multishaft, or Tapestry courses, depending on what kind of loom you want to work with. Handwoven Colour is an exploration of how handpainted and hand-dyed yarns can be applied to weaving projects.

WEAVING LEARNING PATH

Our courses are designed for weavers starting from the absolute beginner to a weaver who wants to discover weave structures and concepts in a way that builds on gained knowledge. We've organized the courses in a curated path so you can get from where you are to where you want to be.

Colour & Weave Gamp

A gamp is a sampler, a weaver’s way of using a single warp to test out multiple ideas. It could be a colour gamp or a weave structure gamp or in this case a gamp that explores colour patterns. Colour and Weave is not a weave structure but rather a pattern, in the sense that it is simply plain weave with the addition of colour effects through alternating light and dark threads.

Breakfast Eggs Towels Pattern

The first warp uses an easy all over houndstooth colour sequence leaving areas of solid yellow and white just like you would have in a fried egg and the second shows you how to use just a bit of striping to create a colour and weave highlight in the corner of your towels with a more muted scrambled egg palette where buttery and deep yellow combine. Mix and match and make them your own.

Wall of Troy Runner Weaving Pattern

In The Intentional Weaver course with Laura Fry, we learned how to beam a warp using a trapeze and this is the project we put on the loom. It’s a 5-yard / 4.6 m long 3/2 cotton warp that we threaded on 8 shafts in a “wall of troy” threading pattern. This pattern can also be threaded on 4 shafts, so both drafts are included here. Changing the treadling will produce new patterns.
