Enjoy the day learning to weave your very own chunky scarf, perfect for keeping you warm this Winter. You will learn how to weave on a peg loom as well as how to warp them up. You will watch group demonstrations that will teach you a range of techniques you might like to try as well as receiving 1 to 1 help throughout the day. There will be lots of gorgeous yarns to use in a variety of colours as well as different textures. You will be able to select and incorporate your own yarn choices giving you a bespoke and unique woven scarf.
The workshop could make a perfect gift at Christmas for those who enjoy making, so they can weave themselves a bespoke scarf in the New Year.
