Weaving Colour & Pattern – 8 Shaft Loom

‘Colour and weave’ effect describes the way colours in the warp and weft interlace to form patterns. From traditional, recognisable patterns such as dog-tooth or Prince of Wales checks to the more intricate and unusual pinwheels, there are lots of designs to choose from.
This course is a great introduction to 8 shaft weaving and you will learn to use a variety of shaft lifts to generate your own pattern sampler.
Unsuitable for complete beginners. (Intro course 2 July)
Venue: Cowshed Creative, Browfoot Farm, Staveley, Nr. Kendal, Cumbria LA8 9JQ
Cost: £68 includes some great tuition, stunning views, a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake, and refreshments throughout the day. We also like to finish the day with a cup of tea and another slice of cake!
The workshop takes place in a traditional converted Lakeland barn, with a stunning art studio and plenty of space to wander outside and enjoy the Lakeland landscape.
