Welcome to the Weave Shed


The Weave Shed is a resource site, providing a portal to available weave resources on one site alongside an active blog featuring weave-related stories, news, up and coming events, jobs, paid internships and featured weavers. We’re a community site and encourage all users to participate in its growth. Please send us weave related posts for our blog, also let us know if there are any additions to links and any inaccuracies.

ASF Shetland Makers Programme

ASF Shetland would like to invite graduate weavers to apply for a makers programme.

The Stay and Make programme is an exchange of services for product design and development, and ASF Shetland  offer accommodation, equipment and use of the yarn store for that programme. The maker pays for food, transport, and a small maintenance charge for the looms of £75 per week. The products designed during the Stay and Make will be created to a brief and they will, in future, be woven and sold to support the organisation.

ASF Shetland has four AVL looms, one of which is a studio loom. All run Weavemaker software and they offer training on how to use the equipment.

Application forms can be downloaded from

Happy New Year from The Weave Shed
