About this course
Saturday and Sunday 19 -20 January 16 – 17 March
This is a basic introduction to weaving for absolute beginners, with the aim to explore and have fun with colour and texture hopefully sparking a life long love of weaving! Looms will be pre-warped and you will have a selection of yarns to choose from.
After an initial stage experimenting, you will progress to weaving a sample piece which may be suitable for a cushion cover, decorative piece or to form the beginning of a project to be continued later.
The final article is dependent on the students prior skill and level of ability, but the aim of the course is to begin to learn about weaving rather than to focus on the final object created over the weekend.
Throughout the weekend all stages of the weaving process will be explained and demonstrated from warp-making to cloth finishing.
A weaver for over 25 years, Janet recently moved here from The Shetland Isles.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
