Would-be weavers are being encouraged to come along to Deeside’s newest purpose-built studio at the Hirn.

The centre at Colourbothy, East Steading‚ Hirn will be offering classes for anyone interested in the craft.

On offer are one-to-one classes which are appropriate for all levels of weavers including complete beginners.

Along with traditional weaving classes, the studio will also offer occasional knitting classes and group classes in weaving narrow wares, braids and ribbons.

Weaver Belinda Rose said: “I’ve been a designer weaver for over 30 years. I love the experience of handling beautiful fabric and love to use texture and colour to create textiles and artwork.”

She described what the classes would feature: “Participants explore colour and design, the qualities of different fibres and yarns and structure and weave a small piece of fabric in a quiet rural setting.”
