Weavers on the weird side

When: The group meets monthly on the 3rd Sunday each month

Time: from 10:00am until 1:00pm

Contact: Ruth Mitchell

As a group we love to explore all types of ‘weird’ weaving techniques. 

Previously known as the Bandweaver's group, our basis is tablet, backstrap and Inkle weaving which have many fascinating techniques. We are also delving into more unusual techniques such as Sprang, fingerweaving, nalbinding, lucet, ply splitting and more. Our aim is to keep these techniques alive and pass the knowledge on.

 The group is fun and informal and we encourage beginners and experienced weavers to come along and join us or just check out what we are up to.
