Classes & workshops

The Handweavers Studio & Gallery runs a wide range of workshops covering weaving, spinning, dyeing, tapestry weaving, and other yarn and fibre crafts. Our Introduction to Weaving and Introduction to Spinning workshops are held regularly throughout the year for those wanting to learn to weave or spin, or wanting to refresh their memories after a long break. More specialist workshops cater for those keen to build on prior experience or explore a new aspect of a craft. We also have weekly weaving classes, both daytime and evening, which are suitable for all levels, and a two-year part-time Diploma course. This is a two-year part-time weaving course for weavers who want to take their weaving to another level. - see below for more information on all of these.
