Weaving Colour and Pattern

Short course

    Due to Covid-19, we're sorry to announce that we will not be running any short courses or workshops during the 2020-21 academic year.

    Learn from experienced local weavers Angie Parker and Penny Wheeler on this three-day masterclass.

    • Use colour theory and psychology to create your own design and colour combinations.
    • Work in a small class on a dedicated table loom alongside the two tutors.
    • Learn from experienced local weavers Angie Parker and Penny Wheeler.

    This exclusive three-day colour and pattern weaving masterclass is limited to a maximum of eight students.

    You'll work with dedicated 8 and 4 shaft table looms alongside the two tutors, who'll show you how to set up and hand-weave a selection of long-established weave techniques: A Foundation Rug Sampler, Extra Weft and Krokbragd.

    You'll create your own design and colour combinations, inspired by colour theory and psychology, and work mostly with woollen yarns.

    The workshop is suitable for keen beginners and experienced weavers.

    Workshop dates: 6-8 July 2020

    "Krokbragd was a completely new weave structure to me which I wanted to learn and I found it challenging but very interesting to do. Loved the results so will use this structure in future and explore it using different yarns."

    "Colour use is an area I have sometimes found difficult but, having done colour theory work with explanations of the language, the handouts and practical exercises, my understanding has grown and I can now explore this area further."
