Jan will have her Ashford table top four shaft looms all warped up ready for you to weave a scarf width & length. She will provide patterns, lots of coloured yarn and patient informative tuition to get you weaving. This one is both highly addictive and therapeutic with the repetitive action of firing the shuttle back & forth. It's suitable for those totally new to weaving as well as those wishing to hone their skills on a particular pattern.
