Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th May 2019


This is a two-day class held in my London weaving studio. 

Over the course of the class you'll weave your own 45cm x 75cm rug on a traditional frame loom, using high-quality rug wool from my own collection. We'll be discussing various rug weaving techniques and their histories and applications in different cultures around the world. You'll be learning the same processes that I use in my own work every day, and you'll also be able to peek behind the scenes at process of creating my handwoven rugs. 

The class takes place over the course of a full weekend, with 6 hours of weaving on each day with an hours break for lunch.  

You'll go home from the class with your own hand-woven rug, a copy of my illustrated tapestry weaving booklet, and a fact sheet with all the information you'll need to keep weaving.
