Hi at last I’ve been able to give out dates for 2 beginners Classes! these are both 2 day classes held in my Studio – Limited places – so contact me quickly if you think you’d like to do one!
24th & 25th Jan 2015
7th & 8th of Feb 2015
cost £90 per weekend ( payment due before class )
Beginners class – introduction to tapestry weaving – weave a small sample and a basic instruction to start with , plain weave , weave basic shapes and diagonals and how to change colours. you will create a small sampler of simple tapestry techniques which will then mean that you can move on to other classes of a more specific nature. All materials needed will be provided along with the use of a wooden frame (loom) during class times.
I often run classes from my studio in Dennistoun – Please watch this space to find out future dates – thank you.
My classes that I run are very small only 3 people maximum per class – so you do almost get one to one tutoring! This does also mean that they can fill up very quickly indeed.
I also occasionally run a wee ‘weavers knot’ – where weavers can bring along the project they are weaving on and weave! I often do them when I’m weaving a project or commission – so I’m weaving too! Great fun and lots of textile chat goes on! A small fee is asked for to cover teas and coffees. If you think you might be interested in taking part in a ‘weavers knot’ please do contact me!
I am also willing to do one to one tutorials and I am fairly flexible with dates and will add extra dates if people wish. My classes are small as I hold them in my studio which is where I keep a large stock of yarn, I also think that if the classes are small they are more personable to each students needs.
