About this course

The Weaving class is for those who have woven before, and can with minimal assistance follow a weaving plan, wind a warp, set up a loom (including threading, sleying and tying on) and weave or for those who are new to weaving.
In this class we will be developing an understanding of how weave structure, sett, yarn fibre, density, spin etc, affect a fabric and you will use that knowledge to plan your own weaving. You will explore weave structure in theory and practice. At the end of this course you should be able to plan and weave to a basic level unassisted.

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress. There will be one to one guidance, group critiques and self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated on the ILP, Individual Learning Plan.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

Scissors, tape measure, ruler and note pad. Most weaving equipment is provided. Apart from pens and a note pad please do not buy books or equipment before the start of the course. Details will be discussed at the first session or if necessary your tutor will send a list a week before the course starts. You need to purchase yarns for your own projects the tutor will talk you through how to do this.

What can I do next?

Further Weaving or Craft courses with KAE.
