In this introductory tapestry weaving class, we will be using Hokett hand looms to weave a small, decorative wall hanging. This class is perfect for beginners, no experience with weaving is necessary. We will start off by learning about the tools and the basic concept of tapestry weaving. From there we will design our tapestries on paper, move to warping the loom, and finally begin weaving!
Looms and weaving tools will be provided to borrow for the duration of the course. Please feel free to bring your own tools and yarns if you have them. If you would like to purchase yarn at the store, Peace Fleece worsted weight skeins are available in 48 different colors. Three to five mini skeins will be enough for your weaving, which would make the materials cost between $9-$15.
This class will meet three times: February 2nd, 9th, & 16th from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
