Mini Loom Weaving
Get in on the world of weaving and learn to make your own woven wall hangings!
In this class, you'll learn basic tapestry weaving, as you design and craft your own mini hanging. You'll learn everything you need to know to create your own modern, abstract, geometric, colorful, fringed, organic, anything-you-want amazing weavings!
You'll learn the 411 of basic weaving stitches, including how to incorporate tassels, fringe, and wool roving to create tons of texture. Students will explore how to plan, set up and begin a piece, and you'll have time for some leisurely weaving with help from the instructor.
Registration includes the materials necessary to make a mini wall hanging, including a birchwood loom from Purl & Loop (a $32 value!) as well as a variety of yarns and wool roving.
Note: If you would like to bring a little of your own yarn, especially if you have colors you know you want to use in your weaving, go for it! Bulky yarns work best for this project. We will provide enough yarn for everyone, but if you have anything special you want to incorporate, feel free to bring it along!
