2-week Intensive Course Structure:

This deep dive into jacquard weave has two options.

  1. You can explore how traditional jacquard looms work and how to design in repeat. You will work in close harmony with one of the four traditional jacquard looms, learning how to design for jacquard plus all the processes behind translating the design idea to cards and thence to weaving.
  2. You can choose to spend your time on the digital TC-1 loom and learn how to design for a digital jacquard, weaving your ideas and adapting your designs.

Teaching time over the two weeks is 40 hours, split into whatever works for you, whether it is more intensive at the start of the course with more self-directed time towards the end or an average of 3 hours per day. It is entirely up to you.

We also include a couple of excursions and meals out and all meals, accommodation, excursions, materials and tuition is included. So you can devote yourself to your learning experience and relax knowing that everything else is taken care of!

3-week Jacquard Course Structure:

This more gentle dive into jacquard weave will allow you to learn everything that the 2-week course does, but with more time to let it sink in. There’s a lot to absorb and the pace is more gentle so that you can learn without the time pressure. Plus you will also get the time to try your ideas on both the digital TC-1 and the traditional looms, if you wish.

Teaching time over the three weeks is 40 hours, split into whatever works for you, whether it is more intensive at the start of the course with more self-directed time towards the end or spread more evenly over the 3 weeks – it is entirely up to you.

Incorporated into this longer course, we have made time for your own private days out – for instance, a trip by train to Bordeaux or Toulouse, perhaps. These are not included in the course price. As usual, we do include several local excursions and  meals out and these, plus all home-cooked meals, accommodation, materials and tuition is included in the price. So you can enjoy your jacquard experience knowing that everything else is taken care of!
