Weaving Workshops

The process of weaving has been around for centuries in textile production,

the method of which, is to have yarns that are interlaced at right angles to

form cloth or fabric.


When trying to understand some of the termonology, the easiest is to think of a

scarf and the threads that create the tasseling are known as Warp Threads and the

threads that go across from side to side are the Weft Threads


Weaving involves using a loom which holds the Warp Threads under tension making it easier for the Weft Threads to be woven by the Weaver
