MASTERCLASS: Weaving on a Palm Loom with Nicola Rudd of Yarns From The Plain
Learn to weave using a Crafts From The Clink hand held loom. The workshop will start with weaving in plain weave, and move on to more complex patterns such as twill as time allows. Participants will produce a woven square, which can be used as a coaster, joined with others to make larger items or further embellished to turn it into a piece of art.
Suitable for beginners (minimum age 8), no previous experience needed.
