Come and try this traditional, straightforward weaving method and make a gorgeous textured wall hanging using a frame loom.

This workshop is perfect if you’re new to weaving. Using a frame loom, you will have the opportunity to design and weave your own bespoke wall hanging with Agnis to guide you. She will support you throughout with group demonstrations as well as individual help as needed.

You will learn a range of different techniques to incorporate into your piece. There will be a wide selection of different yarns in a range of colours and textures – both natural and synthetic fibres. Plenty of materials to inspire you create your own unique hanging.

All materials and equipment are provided.

Please note that there is an £8 materials charge payable on the day for this workshop.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!
