      Hi Tara, It depends on your child: do you want them to participate? This is probably one of the more technical weaving styles we teach, and the class runs with an adult pitch. If they came, you would probably spend most of your time helping your child and not getting much weaving done yourself. We have run weaving classes specifically for children, and if you can find four other people we could run a children’s weaving workshop for your group, which would be much more suitable for 6 year olds. Hope this helps! Jo
