Weaving Classes with Amy Wilson

Your Course leader is Amy Wilson…
A trained Fashion/textile designer with a HND in Fashion, FDT Textile Degree & BA (hons) Woven Textile Design degree & over 6 years experience in woven fabric design.

‘I have run several successful ‘Introduction to Weaving’ workshops where participants have enjoyed creating their own cloth designs from inspiration to final product.

A friendly supportive weekly weaving group – work on your own projects with guidance and tuition.

These classes run in blocks of 10 weeks – during this time a loom will be allocated to you so you are able to work on ongoing projects. All equipment you need will also be provided along with sampling yarns, although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer to work with specific materials.

It is recommended that you complete an Introduction to weaving course prior to enrolling for regular weekly classes, especially if you have no previous weaving experience.

Classes will take place at the Fenners, Digswell Arts studios based in Openshaw Way, Letchworth on Tuesday or Thursday evenings 6.30 – 9.30pm and at other times by prior arrangement.
