Weaving for adults
WEAVING FOR ADULTS
New Dates for Workshops
An Introduction to Weaving – Saturday 21st July 2018 from 10am -1pm. If you are new to weaving then in this class you will learn the basics of the loom and how to weave on it. For those already familiar with weaving you will be able to extend on what you have already learnt. The loom will have a warp already wound on and ready for weaving. You will have time to make a piece that you can choose to have as a table runner, a mat or a wall hanging. Or purchase some soft alpaca for a scarf. (please note, weaving a scarf can take more than the 3 hour class, you will be very welcome to come back to finish your project) Craft wools in a wide array of colours are available and included in the cost, but you are also very welcome to bring along some special wool of your own, or purchase some of my better quality yarns. Cost – $75. Please give me, Fiona, a call on 0414 478585
Weave yourself a Scarf – Saturday 11th August 2018 from 10am – 4pm. This is a full day workshop for people either new to weaving or experienced. The extra time will give you a chance to immerse yourself in your own creativity and make something truely unique to yourself. A black warp threaded and ready for weaving will be on the loom and included in the cost. If you would like either a fine white woollen warp, or a thicker brown one, please let me know at the time of booking so I can have it on the loom ready for you. These warps have an extra cost. $150 for class. Materials extra, you pay just for what you use. Morning tea is included, but please bring some lunch for yourself.
For those who would like to weave in their own time and at their own pace, you can come along on any Tuesday during term time to use a loom for your own project. Depending on loom bookings you are welcome to have sole use of a loom for as long as your project takes to complete.
Tuesdays (term time only) 9.30-4pm Cost – $55 per day or $95 per week (to finish off a project before the following Tuesday)
Our Weaving Hub is now happening – Tuesdays 4.30-6.30pm. This is not a class, more a social get together to weave and learn from each other while relaxing, chatting and unwinding from the day. You are also very welcome to come along with your own table loom. Cost – $25 for the use of a floor loom. $12 if bringing your own.
Drop me a text or phone call so I can hold a loom for you if you’d like to come along.
Materials are not included in the cost but can be purchased by the gram used. Our own alpaca yarn is also available for purchase.
Special Groups & Special Occasions
Do you have a birthday to celebrate, a reunion with friends? Or maybe you’d like to have a special morning with your mother, sister or best friend. Why not spend it with a morning of weaving? Give me a call to work out exactly what you would like in order to make the occasion extra special. Days, times & supplies can be catered for to suit your requirements.
All our looms at Ashculme Textiles are set up with the warp already wound on. This means they are ready for the fun part of weaving and just a short introduction for those who haven’t woven before will have everyone weaving. The looms have just 2 pedals, which means the technique is easy to grasp, leaving more scope for creativity.
