Where to Weave
We are building a map of all the place you can experience weaving for yourself. We hope this will become a useful resource whether you are looking for an exhibition to visit, a workshop to take part in, or some one on one tuition to improve your weaving skills. If you run classes, stage exhibitions, provide mentoring, or anything else that would be of interest to the wider weaving community please use the form at the foot of the page to send us the details and we will add you to our map.
