Thrilling Twills-Weaving Workshop

You are invited to the “Thrilling Twills” for a 2-day intensive Warping and Weaving Workshop! We will begin, Friday evening, with a basic discussion of weaving including the different weaving methods and when and where each was used. I would like everyone to share the history behind their favorite weaving technique, or ask questions about techniques that interest them.
This will be followed by a hands-on session Saturday morning during which you will focus on warping multiple harness table and floor looms. Attendees are welcome to bring looms that need warping, or use one of several loaner looms available. Once the looms are warped we will tuck into your weaving.
For those who are brand new to weaving a Weaving Basics document will be provided in advance to help you learn basic weaving vocabulary (please request this in your RSVP if you need it). This will allow us to get right to the hands on sessions!
When will this workshop take place you ask? 1 - 3 October 2010
Where: Hockwold cum Wilton, Norfolk (Flintheath)
Proposed Schedule:
Friday Dinner and Weaving Discussion
Warp looms
Weaving, with breaks, lunch, and tea/coffee as necessary
Sunday- departures as needed
Please RSVP to Jahanara, please include any dietary requirements/allergies as food is provided throughout the weekend.

What should I bring? Yourself and any looms you need warped, or for which you need help and advice.

How many people can attend? We have crash space for 7-10, including student's partners.

I hope to see many of you there.
