Learn to Weave in 2022
 
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, clothes and jewellery, etc). You can make a small bag, tables mat, wall hanging or cover a notebook, and do your bit for the planet! 

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