Learn to Weave in 2023
I love teaching others how to weave, so if you and your friends or local organisation (preferably in the Nottingham area) want to learn how to get started, then get in touch. It's easier than learning how to knit and doesn't need expensive equipment.

In a Weaving with Waste day course you will learn the basics of weaving on a simple frame loom, and how to incorporate all sorts of waste materials (plastic packaging, old cables, cut up old clothes and jewellery, etc). You can make a small bag, table mat, wall hanging or cover a notebook, and do your bit for the planet! 

I also give talks and demonstrations to groups, such as craft groups and WI groups, called 'My Weaving Journey', which is about how my skills and interests have developed over the years. I bring lots of samples of my colourful work.
