If you are interested in a Custom Weaving Project Session the possibilities are endless so we encourage you to come into the studio and have a look at our example textile pieces and meet our looms. 


We will then start to plan your project and talk about what you would like to achieve. We will work out a price for your project before you begin. You are then able to come into the studio to work on your project at a time that suits you and complete it at your own pace. 


A tutor will be on hand to guide you through the process. 

Suitable for beginners and children 7+
