Textiles at The Weir - Art Workshop in Abergavenny

Welcome / Croeso

Come and visit a beautiful area of Monmouthshire and learn a new skill in a cosy, country workshop. Textiles at The Weir is a studio based at a working small holding on the outskirts of Llanddewi Rhydderch, a small village just outside the market town of Abergavenny. 

We provide a variety of textile based day courses including hand and machine embroidery, felting, embellishing, fabric painting and printing. 

Our courses cater for all abilities from total beginners to the more experienced people looking for new challenges and techniques. 

All courses are taught in small groups up to six with lots of opportunities for one-to-one tuition. The aim is for everyone to produce piece of work by the end of the day.

Gwlan Y Fenni
Abergavenny Wool


Our smallholding is in the small  village of Llanddewi Rhydderch. It is home to our flock of Coloured Ryeland Sheep, which have been lovingly reared for 6 years and seems to be forever growing!! We have also established a Textile Studio - Textiles at The Weir where we run courses, as well as create our own products.

Anyway, in one year we have bred 19 lambs, and their wool will be going into making yet more throws, cushions and scarves and covered books - so be ready to see our products for many years to come.

We have the wool processed, spun, and woven by an independent woollen mill in beautiful Mid Wales. We chose them as it is family run, just like us!!
Our fleece comes in various colours ranging from striking silver through to many gorgeous shades of grey and fawn. All mixed together to produce these beautiful shades, light, medium and dark colourways which I'm sure you will agree will suit any colour scheme!

All woollen products are hand washable.

The Sheep

Ryeland Sheep are amongst the oldest of the established British Sheep breeds, it is thought that they were derived from the Spanish Merino. Although it is also known the breed was developed in the area surrounding Ross-On-Wye, which is only down the road from where we are now! They were highly prized for their fleece.
