Tapestry Loom Weaving Class
This is a terrific introduction to the wonderful world of weaving. Try your hand at making a unique wall piece while experimenting with gorgeous colour and texture. You don’t need a loom to participate in this workshop - you will be crafting your very own hand built loom in the first class. The remainder of your class time will be spent learning how to set up your loom for weaving and combining fibres and textures with a variety of design and tapestry weaving methods. In the second class students will learn the finishing techniques needed to complete and hang your creation, and tapestry embellishments such as tassels.
2 sessions, $94 fee includes materials for making your loom and your warping yarn. Other materials not included.
