Teaching, Courses and Workshops in 2019

Studio Weave ‘drop-in’ (but please let me know you are coming!) day.  A once in a while opportunity for you to come and spend time at my studio near Cirencester.  I offer guidance and support at whatever level is appropriate. Ideal for those who have attended one of my workshops and want to design, make a warp 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 or floor loom.

£25 for half a day (up to 3 hours), pay on the day. Materials and use of equipment included.  Let me know you are coming, so I can confirm there is space for you and I can prepare the necessary for what you would like to do!  Message via the website,  email rebeccaconnollydesign@gmail.com or text 07582 407918
