Learn the basics of weaving on a small frame loom, as a one-off experience or as a stepping stone in the journey of learning to weave. You will weave a small sample choosing from a large selection of yarn colours and a design, guided by the tutor. Suitable for complete beginners and those with some weaving experience. As the group size will be small, we can accommodate individual needs and interests.
About your Mentor
About your Mentor
Jackie teaches weaving as an art form, exhibits and undertakes commissions internationally. She has been weaving for over 20 years and teaching for 12 years. Jackie started weaving on small frames whilst on an Art and Design Foundation Course. She then studied African and Asian Art and Archaeology at SOAS, London University. She completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Tapestry Weaving, at West Dean College in 1997 and continues to work in weave, sometimes including embroidery and knotting. She is a member of the British Tapestry Group, Sussex Arts Collective, Outside In and the East Sussex Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. “Tapestry weaving is definitely a slow art. It is also very rewarding as the process of weaving has a calming effect, using colour and texture in a direct, hands-on and creative way. Through my workshops, I like to encourage individual expression and the help personality of each weaver to come through”
