This is a course (6 x 2 hours) in which you will work on one of our table looms. In this class you will learn to work on this loom, while creating your own woven bag or cushion cover!
We have two looms available, one with 4 shafts and one with 8 shafts. All materials are included in this course. The materials we use are natural. The warp is set up with organic cotton and linen and you can use (local) wool while weaving as well. You can choose to make a bag or cushion cover in class. The bag that you are creating is a special design by teacher Rosa Smits. You will start with an instruction about the loom, choose of materials and than you can start weaving!
