Join us for a workshop to learn how to weave on pre-warped looms, using some of the traditional patterns from Shetland’s tweed history.

There is no need to bring anything to the workshop but if you would like to use an image to choose colours, you are welcome to do so.

Materials: Lunch will be provided. Please advise us if you have any dietary requirements, allergies, etc.

Directions: Sellafirth is on the main route through Yell. Head up towards Gutcher from Ulsta ferry terminal and as you enter the north part of the island, just after a sweep around the head of Basta Voe, you will enter Sellafirth. As you leave Sellafirth again you will see an industrial estate with two buildings on it, one red and one blue. Turn right into the estate and we are in the last set of buildings.
