10:00 - 16:00



Using a peg loom you will spend the day weaving your very own cushion cover top.

You will have access to a wide range of colourful yarns in various different textures and materials both natural and synthetic allowing you to create your very own bespoke design. Agnis will be on hand to offer group demonstrations as well as one-to-one support throughout the session.

You will learn how to warp up your loom as well as how to weave and be shown a few different techniques you also might like to try within your work.

Please note there will not be time within the workshop to sew your woven cushion top into a final cushion, you will leave with a square piece of fabric to then sew into a cushion at home.
