About the Programme

Weaving has been used to make textiles for thousands of years. With recent advances in manufacturing technologies, it is now easier than ever to access the basic tools needed to get into weaving! With MakeIT’s mini-loom weaving kits, you can pick up this timeless skill but with a technological twist!

By the end of the workshop, you will achieve the following:

  • Practise basic weaving techniques with a mini frame loom that you can take home with youi
  • Learn weaving terminology and common patterns such as plain weave, basket weave, twill weave, and soumak
  • Create your own woven design using the supplied thread and yarn

This activity is facilitated and will serve as a great introduction for those curious about weaving but don’t know where to start.

This workshop is suitable for those aged 50 years and above.
