Teaching, Courses and Workshops in 2019

MARCH 23rd, Saturday 10am to 4pm (More dates will be added as they are scheduled)

Studio ‘drop-in’ day  A once in a while opportunity for you to come and spend time weaving at my studio near Cirencester.  I can offer guidance and support to ‘would-be weavers’ at whatever their level. Ideal for those who have attended one of my workshops and want to design and rethread their Rigid Heddle with a new project. Absolute Beginners could have a go at weaving on a back-strap loom, Improvers could try 4-shaft weaving on a table loom?

£10 per hour, pay on the day. Materials and use of equipment included. You can just drop-in space permitting but if you let me know you are coming and what you would like to do, I can prepare the necessary!  Message or email rebeccaconnollydesign@gmail.com
