Courses

The courses last five days and take place in Chinon.

Each trainee carries out the project of his choice, defined before the beginning of the course.

The trainees benefit on the spot from all the material and theoretical resources of the workshop (samples, threads, looms, accessories, specialized library, …).

P1010879

The trainees weave on four, eight or sixteen shafts table looms, or on a eight countermarch loom.

The program is “à la carte” according to the levels (beginners, passionates, experienced) and the desire of trainees. It is defined upstream:

– Discovery of the basic techniques to become autonomous: definition of the project to weave, preparation of the warp yarns, warping on a frame, winding on the loom, lining and lamination, then weaving basic armor, canvas, twill and satin.
– Realization of samples or fabric: stole, scarf, runner …
– Deepening of a technique or armor by studying it by a theoretical approach and experimenting it on the loom with the threads made available – wool, cotton, linen or silk.
– Your training needs are to be defined in advance: techniques, desired armor structures, models to analyze. Do not hesitate to communicate before your course to be ready according to your desires.
