Mudchute Farm Weaving: aa052204d

Mudchute Farm is located on the Isle of Dogs, in east London.

I’ve had the delightful opportunity to work at Mudchute Farm, giving weaving and handspinning demonstrations. These samples were woven by the young children that attended the school break sessions at the farm.

The looms that were available at Mudchute Farm were Marcroft Looms. Although the looms were quite easy to warp, I found that they were difficult for small children to use. The warp threads had a tendency to bounce out of the ‘heddles’ creating a bit of a chaos to frequently sort out. I think a fixed rigid heddle loom would be easier to manage for beginner weavers.
