Create a circular woven face that can be hung on the wall or used as a table mat. This could be animal or human or complete fantasy. You will learn how to set up a circular loom and how to weave using a needle. Yarns of different thicknesses can be added for textural effect. This is an online course, taught on Zoom in a relaxed, friendly, small group. Weaving materials and equipment can be easily obtained. The tutor will email you an electronic link to your class in advance of the class. This will be sent to you separately to the booking confirmation.
This is a very cost effective online workshop where you learn to weave on recycled materials . So you need to provide the following materials ahead of the workshop, you will require: 1. A small hoop (approx. 10-15 cm diameter), such as an embroidery hoop, plastic or metal ring can be used as a loom. 2. Yarns. All sorts of different yarns and/ or strips of material can be woven with. A good way to use up odds and end of knitting yarn or embroidery threads. 3. Small pair of scissors, such as embroidery scissors 4. Large-eyed needle metal or plastic, (eg. a darning needle) 5. A ruler. As this is online you need a computer or tablet with Zoom and internet connection. You will receive an email directly from the tutor with a link to attend the meeting ahead of your session. Please ensure you book with your current email address.

If a course has already started please call the office as it may be possible to join after the start date. This may only be possible if the course is not already full, if it is not disruptive for the other students and you are aware that you have missed a percentage of the course and the tutor will not have time to catch you up. This will be at discretion of the Folk House. We run our courses termly, so it might be best to start at the beginning of the course.
