About this event
Learning how to weave is very easy and rewarding! You will be addicted in no time!
In this workshop, we will learn the basics of weaving including how to warp a loom, how to weave with a needle and shuttle, and how to use different kinds of yarn. Using an 8.5" X 11" pop out loom and simple weaving tools, you will apply these skills by making your first woven tapestry! Each finished tapestry will measure around 8" X 10.5".We will learn some fancy weaving techniques like Rya (aka tassels) and Soumak- a decorative braid embellishment.By the end of class, you will have a completed woven tapestry and the knowledge and skills to learn more! You will also receive a class handout that includes weaving instructions, resources, and locations to find loom and weaving supplies.
