In this 4 hour workshop you will learn the basics of weaving. We’ll start the session weaving a bracelet. You can pick your own colours! And then we’ll continue learning with a second small project where we’ll experiment with different stitches.

Starting with small projects is a great way to experiment with different techniques and run into common made issues. As we’ll work with small groups there’s lots of time to give personal tips.

What you’ll learn in this workshop

  • How to warp your weaving loom
  • How to make your first row
  • How to prevent common beginner mistakes when weaving
  • How to make a basic weaving stitch
  • How to make a weavers knot
  • How to make fringes
  • How to take the bracelet from the loom and finish it.


  • During the workshop we will weave the bracelet with 100% cotton threads, the easiest starting point for beginners. You can pick your own colours thread.
  • For the second mini project you can continue with the same cotton threads or experiment with some other ecological fibres.
  • All materials used during the workshop are included.
  • If you want to continue creating at home you’re welcome to buy the loom and extra materials in our studio.
