Learn to make a warp & thread up your handloom with Laura Thomas
Saturday 29th February & Sunday 1st March 2020
10:30 - 16:30
Using your own 4, 8 or 16 shaft handloom and warping frame/mill, learn how to plan a warp and make all the necessary technical calculations. You will then go through the complete process of making the warp and threading up your loom. You will conclude day 2 by starting to weave and receiving personal tuition in weave techniques, processes and materials relevant to your ambitions for your weaving project.
Detailed handouts will be provided.
Suitable for warping novices but who have some weave experience.
Please bring: your loom and warping mill/frame, notebook, pencil, pen, rubber, calculator, ruler with inch markings, masking tape or sellotape and fabric scissors. You may also want to bring a camera so you can take pictures to act as a personal aide memoir for the process. Once booked I can advise you on your warp yarn.
If you do not have a table loom then you may be able to hire one from the Makers Guild Wales for a period of up to four weeks at a fee of £25/week plus a £200 refundable deposit. Please email email@example.com or telephone 029 20484611£160
