one of the joys of weaving on my laptop looms is that they are so portable, fold up neatly into a bag that can be slung over the shoulder and taken out!!

today we had a fun session in St George’s park, here in Norwich, next to the river (too breezy on the bridge!) sitting on a bench in the sun, spending a couple of hours of weaving al fresco and inviting passers by to have a go!!

one of the looms has taken residence in the window of ‘makeplace’, also on Magdalen Street, in the heart of the city’s ‘Creative Quarter’, where I will be teaching people how to use these fabulous little looms to make a piece of weave that can then be turned into a bag, purse, laptop cover or even just a scarf! Sally and Cindy, who run makeplace, also offer a series of sewing courses from beginners to advanced in their well-equipped teaching workshop.
