Beginner Weaving Workshop

Event Date: 
December 16, 2019 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm

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.
