A treasure trove for weavers, spinners, felters, dyers, embroiderers
The handweavers studio & gallery
Welcome to the online home of The Handweavers Studio & Gallery, a treasure trove for weavers, spinners, felters, dyers, embroiderers ... in short, for everyone who loves threads and fibres.
We have an extensive range of materials and equipment for the whole world of fibre art and textile crafts - yarns for weavers and knitters; merino tops; plant, animal and 'other' fibres for spinners and felters; fancy threads for embroiderers ... the list goes on. And then there are the shuttles, high and low-tech looms, tapestry frames, spinning wheels, carders, niddy-noddies, tassel moulds and a host of other equipment, large and small... plus books and magazines to instruct and inspire.
Visitors are always welcome at our 'bricks and mortar' shop, within London underground's zone 2, where we also have an extensive workshop programme; these include regular slots for Introduction to Weaving and Introduction to Spinning. Autumn 2016 will see the start of a workshop series especially for rigid-heddle loom weavers. We also run regular weaving classes.
There are always interesting items on display, or a special exhibition. So come and browse - in the shop or online - and allow your creative juices full rein. Most of our yarns and fibres are available in really small quantities, so you needn't worry about breaking the bank!
If you need help our friendly team will be able to assist, as between them they have most of the fibre crafts covered!
