In this 3 hour workshop you will learn the essentials of frame-loom weaving - how to set up your loom, the mechanics of weaving, different ways of creating texture and pattern and how to finish and remove your completed piece. Along with instruction there will be plenty of time during this class to begin (and maybe even finish!) your very first woven wall-hanging.
Your class fee includes everything you need to begin and continue weaving (and yes! all of this is yours to keep): a beautiful, locally made, maple hand loom, five essential tools, a selection of local, hand-dyed and exotic natural-fibre yarns and an extensive booklet of step-by-step weaving techniques and resources.
We will also serve light snacks and a drink for everyone.
