We’ve been delighted to include so many wonderful examples of what our members have learned through our School of Weaving and how they have interpreted that knowledge into their own unique cloth. We’d love to see what YOU are creating – send us your photos, and the story behind what you have created on your loom as a member of the School of Weaving.
