Weaving Tuition

Textile Craft Workshops

NEW series of weaving classes for beginners and refreshers!

Learn to weave on a four-shaft table loom, in my well-equipped weaving shed in Bolton.

This course will take place  on a Monday from 10-3.30 every week for four weeks, starting on 5th March 2018. Future courses on a Saturday are also planned, but no dates are available as yet.

You will be provided with all the equipment, materials and techniques you will need to design and weave your own unique length of fabric, giving you a real taste of this wonderful and traditional skill.

The total cost is £180 for the 4 days, and payment in full is due at the time of booking. Places are limited to a maximum of 4 people, so for more information and to reserve your place email Jane Flanagan at janesflanagan@yahoo.co.uk or telephone 07772 455536.

I design and weave unique accessories and clothing, working on my sixteen shaft electronic dobby loom in my home studio in Bolton, in England’s sunny North West. Using natural fibres such as cotton, wool and linen in a broad palette of colours, I am inspired by the sights, textures and structures of the natural and manmade environment. I make it my aim to use sustainable, ethically produced and environmentally friendly materials, processes and equipment in my work wherever possible. I  teach weaving from beginners to advanced and offer workshops in traditional textile crafts such as spinning, weaving, natural dyeing and feltmaking. These workshops are tailor-made for groups or individuals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, and take place either in my studio or at a venue of your choice. In addition, I run 2 residential weaving workshops every year, in February and September, at Waddow Hall, near Clitheroe.
