Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving Workshop, Salisbury

Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving Workshop, Salisbury


A day long frame weaving workshop for beginners between 10am - 4pm in the beautiful setting of Fisherton Mill in Salisbury. 

CLICK HERE for a short video on what to expect.


The course price includes 6 hours of guided tuition, use of the looms and all materials including yarns and a selection of fibres including organic cotton, bamboo, flax and hemp.

You will be given your own clear workshop handouts to take away with you.



The workshop will teach you the basic principles and terminology of weaving and you will create a small woven piece using a frame loom.

Spaces are limited to ensure so you receive as much guidance as you need.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those that have a little experience and would like a refresher.

You will have the opportunity to buy your loom (£25) and other materials at the the end of the workshop. 



Fisherton Mill have a wonderful cafe where you can purchase your lunch, cakes and drinks, however if you'd prefer to bring a pack lunch, please feel free to do so.

You will be provided with all the materials you will need for the workshop however if you have any material at home that you would like to experiment with then please feel free to bring them along.



Please arrive in good time to ensure you have time to park before the workshop begins. There is no parking for Fisherton Mill but you can park all day in Salisbury Central Long Stay Car Park (Mill Stream Approach, Salisbury, SP1 3SL) which is just a five minute walk from Fisherton Mill.

The workshop will take place in the gallery upstairs.

I like to start promptly as there is quite a lot to go through, but if you do find you are running late, please don't panic, once i've got everyone started off i'll be able to get you up to speed with the rest of the group fairly quickly.

I look forward to meeting you soon but if you have any questions beforehand, please feel free to contact me.

Workshop cancellations by you

Our workshops are priced as fairly as possible. We therefore have to have a clear cancellation policy to ensure that we cover our costs and the on going viability of the workshop.
Please check your diary carefully to ensure that you are available to attend any workshops you are booking with us. 

All our workshops are strictly non-refundable in all circumstances.

If you give more than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop your options are as follows:

  • We will be happy to transfer you to another workshop, space permitting.
  • If there are no suitable future dates for you to transfer to we can provide a voucher to be used for a future workshop booking, this will be valid for one year from the date of issue.
  • You can of course send someone in your place at any time, but please note that this is your responsibility to find a replacement person and you must let us know in advance who will be attending.

If you give less than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop then your options are as follows:

  • If you would like to transfer, we can only transfer you to a future workshop if your place is re-sold.
  • If you would like to transfer and the place is not re-sold, we can add you to a last minute availability waiting list for future dates of the workshop. If there are still unsold places on the workshop with 24-48 hours until the workshop is due to take place, we will offer you a place at no additional charge. Please note this option is not a guarantee of a space.

We will do our best to fill the place within this time. Please be aware that in our experience it can be difficult to fill places on workshops at short notice.

Multiple class sessions

Some of our workshops take place over several sessions. If you miss a session unfortunately we cannot offer a make up session. If you require further tuition to complete your project you may be able to book 1:1 lessons depending on the project and tuition required.

Workshop cancellations by us

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a workshop you will be given at least 24 hours notice and offered a transfer to another date, voucher to be used at another time or in our store, or a full refund. We will not be held liable for any other costs or expenses that you may incur in the event of cancellation by us.

Great guidance from Ellie

I'd had a tricky week so not at all in the right frame of mind when I arrived but the day was a joy and helped me step out of that energy. Great guidance from Ellie, detailed notes to take away and a great selection of sustainable yarns to work with. Now have a grasp of the basics and how to get going on the loom and have spent time just playing. Ellie is lovely and good at keeping everyone going at their own pace and how they learn. Thank you Ellie!

Brilliant day course

What a fabulous creative day. I've just got home from a superb day course an "Introduction to Frame Weaving" at Fisherton Mill Salisbury run by Ellie of Elka sustainable textiles.

Ellie was a fantastic teacher, really thorough with her instructions and explanations. Very patient and happy to answer questions and give individual attention when required. The course materials were amazing, a huge choice of sustainable yarns and fibres to choose from. Her knowledge of the sustainable & renewable materials and methods of production was immense and her enthusiasm and love of this subject shone through and was inspirational.

I had a really enjoyable day, have created an awesome (if i may say so myself!) wall hanging that I'm thrilled with. I would definitely recommend Ellies courses.
