Join our resident weaver Sue Tucker at Cogges and try your hand at the rural craft of spinning and weaving on a table loom. Workshops can be booked on a date that suits you, for a small group of friends or individually. Try an introductory session, or enquiries are welcome for a range of weaving workshops this season. 

Workshops

"These sessions are aimed at enthusing and developing a taste for further exploration into the world of wool yarn making, spinning and weaving.  A weaving loom will be warped up ready for you to use during the time and a spinning wheel ready also. You do not have to bring anything at all and any materials can be purchased if you choose." -  Sue Tucker.
