Beginner Weaving Workshop

q: is it that thing that you hang on the wall?

‍a: yes. that’s a type of weaving you can create, but there’s more to it than a quick find at your local home goods store. weavings can be wearable, placed between the pages of your favorite novel, or even used as a rug - you know, some off the wall stuff. now that you have a general understanding of a few projects you can make and if you are a true beginner interested in getting the chillest introduction to my favorite craft, join me for this beginners weaving workshop.

students will learn:
~ how to set-up and use a loom, including the importance of tension
~ three to seven basic weaving techniques
~ how to plan your first project, including experimenting with color and texture
~ clean-up and finishing techniques

~ acrylic loom and tools (shed stick, beater, shuttle and tapestry needle)
~ seven weaving templates with instructions
~ enough yarn to finish your project at home
~ canvas tote bag

a variety of yarns and roving will be provided but students should also consider bringing other non-conventional materials (cut up fabric, ribbon, cotton rope, etc.) for a personal touch or exchange.
