Course dates: Saturday 16th till Tuesday 19th January - Wonderful 4 days!
The workshop is designed to give the participant many opportunities to weave, experimenting with pattern, texture and colour. They will be excited by the variation in their woven samples and all of one warp. A favourite sample will be chosen and an article woven e.g. table runner – length for vest, and still of the one wrap. All samples will be compiled into a folder.
