Weaving Beginners

Tutor:  Kirsty Odds

Classes will be held on Wednesdays from 11am-1:30pm and it will run over an 8 week block from 27/04.

Weaving is on the first floor of the Mill building.

This class is aimed at people who are beginners or relatively new to weaving who require support in setting up their own projects.  This would also be suitable for weavers who have been weaving on a rigid heddle loom who would like to learn how to use a 4-shaft loom.

The class will introduce pupils to weaving on a 4-shaft loom.  They will be shown how the loom works and have the chance to learn the process of weaving before progressing onto starting to weave their own fabrics.

This class will teach weavers how to set up the loom and choose a project to weave, such as a scarf or cushion cover, and provide an introduction to designing for weave.

Yarn can be purchased from the weaving room for an additional cost of £5/project or people can source their own materials which the class tutor is happy to advise on.

Kirsty is a handweaver who completed a diploma at Handweaver’s Studio, London.She works from her garden studio in Aberlady as Hopipola Handwovens creating fresh, contemporary pieces predominantly for use in interiors and accessories on traditional looms.
 
The seasons are often reflected in her work, whether influencing colours, textures or yarns.  Come spring, the bright, light airiness that flourishes tends to prompt her to play with a brighter colour palette, giving rise to joyful fabrics.
