Back-strap Weaving with Angie Parker

November 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

£69.50 (8 inches wide) / £59.50 (4 inches wide)

On this online back-strap weaving course you will learn how to set up a simple back-strap loom, and explore the potential of weaving with texture and colour under the expert guidance of rug weaver, Angie Parker.

Back strap weaving is an ideal introduction to weaving, and because the looms are easy to set up and move around you can enjoy your weaving indoors and outdoors, so long as you have a fixed post to attach your warp to.

You can weave scarves, bags and wall-hanging’s using this method or simply enjoy the therapeutic benefits are learning to weave for the sheer fun of it.

The tuition will be two 1.5 hour sessions throughout the day and will guide through setting up the loom and weaving fabric well.

As part of the course you will receive a complete weaving kit through the post and a downloadable PDF fully illustrated instruction leaflet for you to print out. The kit is yours to keep unless you wish to return it after the session for a partial refund, as sustainability is an important part of these online workshops. After booking, Angie will make a warp of your colour choice as part of the kit.
