What you'll do

You will be shown how to weave using a small rigid heddle, pre-warped loom, one per person. A large variety of yarns and other materials will be available for you to choose in all colours, to add colour and texture to your weaving.
I will demonstrate different techniques for you to try to achieve textured effects.
I will greet you in my spacious light and airy Norwich studio with tea, coffee and biscuits. I am in the centre of Norwich which has a rich heritage of textiles, especially weaving.
We will weave together for one and a half hours and then you will have a choice to: a) continue to weave, or b) use the second half of the workshop to create a Norfolk Lavender Hanging Heart to take home, made from your weaving.
I hope that you will leave the experience with a relaxing vibe from the workshop, some knowledge of both weaving and our beautiful city and most importantly a unique piece of weaving created by yourself.
Other things to note
Due to Covid 19 government guidelines, I am only having 4 people in my studio at any time. All equipment is sanitised before each workshop and hand sanitiser and paper towels are in each work basket. I will wear a visor to demonstrate. Face coverings are optional but advisable in communal areas.

I have lived in Norfolk for 40years. I came to Norfolk as a newly qualified textile teacher in a local high school and have always had a passion for textiles and sewing and in the last eight years weaving and spinning have been added to the skills list. I have had my studio space on my own for nearly three years and have hosted and co-hosted many workshops. I love meeting people and introducing them to a new skill in a stimulating and creative environment.

Where you'll be

My studio is an old industrial building that has been filled with individual artists studios. I am very lucky to have a large spacious studio on the first floor of the building, right in the heart of Norwich, within a few minutes walk to shops, river, museums and theatres.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 5 reviews.

I would highly recommend this course. Julia is lovely and very talented. The studio is large and well equipped, and the course itself was very informative and enjoyable. I completely lost myself for a few hours weaving and chatting.

Julia is so patient and inspiring. She has the ability to instill confidence and make you believe that you can do whatever you try. The experience went by far too quickly.
