£34.00

In this workshop we will go further with a peg loom and experiment with creating patterns and textures.  We will cover plain weave, pick and pick, making shapes, soumak and rya knots – techniques that you would usually associate with tapestry weaving but are actually equally suited for the peg loom!

Please note – for students who have already done a “yarn bowl weaving” workshop on a peg loom, or some basic peg loom weaving elsewhere.

All materials provided. You will take home a small weaving sampler will all the techniques you have learnt and also a handout to help you continue weaving at home.
