This is our founder Francesca. She loves weaving. While visiting her sister in Japan, Francesca discovered a small community weaving studio in Kichijoji. She took one afternoon beginners class and fell in love with the freedom and calm of the Japanese freestyle weaving process. Without anywhere to practice in London, Francesca trained to teach at a Japanese weaving studio in New York, came home and opened up her own version, you guessed it! The London Loom.


Francesca has been teaching weaving and other textile crafts since 2015 and has taught weaving workshops for Tate Modern, Southbank Centre, Scouts, Hackney Arc and the Royal Society of Sculptors and has appeared in (amongst others) Mollie Makes, Stylist, PomPom Quarterly, Time Out (on the front cover!) The Telegraph and is the author of Weave This (Hardie Grant 2018). The London Loom was also named Mollie Makes Best Craft Workshops of 2019.
