Kay’s weaving school

Location: In my home studio at 30 Barron Rd, Birkdale, Queensland, Australia

Why: I have become increasingly concerned about the future of hand weaving. I wish to provide the opportunity for weavers to come and learn either a new technique, brush up on existing skills, simply weave a project that they’ve wanted to weave or experience weaving on different types of looms. I wish the experience to be fun, stress free, supportive and at the same time challenging. I want students to come away knowing that they have achieved.

My commitment is to offer highly individualised instruction responding to the individual needs and experience of the student.

Skill level required: Some classes will be focused for the beginner while others for the more experienced. Each class will nominate experience level.

Class size will be limited.

The classes to be offered: My aim is to offer a variety of learning experiences so that there will be an opportunity to suit everyone’s needs.

There will be listed scheduled classes; either week long, or 1 day a week.

For those wishing a structured format when attending either a weekly or “A Special”, you may select from the list of topics or nominate one of your own choosing.

If the studio is available, it will also be possible for individuals or groups to apply to use the studio privately, hiring studio space and a loom for a particular project.
