Weaving is a fascinating craft with so many possibilities. I started by weaving tapestries 

on a frame and then moved on to weaving rugs on a four shaft loom 

before becoming involved with fabric weaving.

It is aimed at those who have done some weaving as well as complete beginners.

 

 Above Rigid heddle and four shaft looms

Right Twills woven with four shafts

 

Most of the looms will be threaded up. There are more than 

70 four shaft patterns to choose from. Most of the rigid heddle 

looms will be set up so that the weft dominates the design, 

allowing you to experiment with rug and tapestry weaving methods.  

The samples you create can be made up into small bags or used as mats. 

You will have the chance to weave on a rigid heddle loom set up for fabric weaving..
