• Image of Large Loom Weaving: One-to-One

UPDATE- I've just listed a few weekend spots for One-to-One bookings! But do email me at christybalfour@hotmail.com if you would like a week-day booking, and we can work something out.

The Large Loom Weaving One-to-One is a four-hour class exploring tapestry weaving on a large frame loom. In this class I share the techniques that I use in weaving my rugs and wall- hangings.

I’ll take you through warping your loom, choosing materials, setting up leashes and shed sticks and starting to weave. We’ll cover designing for a large-scale piece, how to avoid structural flaws and curving sides, as well as shape-building, colour and texture.

Students will get their own large scale frame loom, measuring 40x60cm, weaving tools, warp thread and wool to take home with them, along with a copy of my booklet- “Tapestry Weaving: An Illustrate Guide.”

Classes are held in my studio in Peckham, south east London, and take place within working hours, Monday- Saturday. Classes can also be broken up into two 2- hour evening sessions.
