Weaving online course

Weaving is a great way to create beautiful handmade items for your home and wardrobe without the need for any existing craft skills. It is a simple technique in its most basic form and very versatile. Use your weaving to make scarves, pictures and even clothing. Although not a requirement, if you spin too you have the added bonus of being able to create things from the very beginning, sheep to scarf! Weaving is something that both adults and young people can enjoy.

 

This course will show you the basics of how to weave on a simple frame loom and progress to teaching you to use the versatile yet easy-to-use ‘rigid heddle’ loom. These looms can be used to make many things yet do not take up much room in your home and can be easily stored.

 

Through a combination of easy to follow videos filmed by Piotr Karter at Inlight Media and comprehensive supporting texts, experienced course tutor Janet Renouf-Miller of Create With Fibre will guide you through the weaving process from start to finish. At just £30 for 36 videos and 12 texts, it makes a great gift for any crafter… yourself included!

MORE HAPPY CLIENTS

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for teaching me to spin last weekend. i didn't stop grinning all day! i was so proud of my first skein (of yarn) I am taking it along to my Stitch and Bitch group tonight'

'all the feedback I have had from previous students has been excellent about you. Other people sing your praises too.'

 

".....you brought a great deal of material and a huge variety of equipment. You made the art of spinning look so graceful as well as simple. I understand that you introduced a variety of methods which seemed to be very popular with the members...... you exercised a great deal of patience, giving each member personal time. That gesture was obviously much appreciated."

MF, Secretary, West of Scotland Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers.
