Courses at the Woolmill: An Introduction to Weaving

Posted on February 20, 2015 by Emma Nicolson

Sam Goates from We are One Creative led a 3 day introduction to weaving course at the Woolmill this week. From the basic structure of weaving, and looking at how to design a warp, right through to drafting the heddles and weaving on a 4 shaft table top loom, participants learned all the techniques required to create a scarf width woven piece of fabric.  Using a photograph for inspiration, participants deconstructed the colours their photograph contained to create the warp, and used that as the base for trying out different weaving techniques with the weft.
