I’m selling this loom as the focus of my practice has changed.  I’m downsizing to a smaller space so I need to move it on to a new home.


See spec below, but please email me for further info and additional photos if you’re interested.  The loom can be viewed at Farfield Mill during opening hours Wed-Sun 10.30-4pm by arrangement.  20 mins from J37 on the M6.


It is currently set up with a warp so potential buyers can try it out. However, I’m moving out of the current workshop in mid May at which point I will need to break it down and put into storage.


Please email me – info@alisharman-weaver.co.uk – for further info or to arrange a time to visit as I’m not in every day.  Buyer to collect – I’ll help you to dismantle it.
