Spinners and weavers of Ottawa - join us for a evening of fibre fun with Donna at Wabi Sabi from 6-9 PM on Thursday, June 8! Spinners, be sure to bring your wheel or spindle and your hand-spuns for show and tell! Weavers, bring your loom, your projects (both finished and unfinished), and your ideas! This event is free of charge but space will be limited! Please register in advance to reserve a spot, and let the shop know whether you will be spinning or weaving, especially if you need table space for a loom! Please note: this event is free. Please disregard any automatic reply that indicates otherwise. Please remember that our spin and weave nights are not courses - if you need a beginner course you can find one here!
In this class you will learn the basics of weaving with the rigid heddle loom, including how to set up your loom, plan for future projects, and weave! By the end of the course, you will have created a scarf/shawl using two colours. PLEASE NOTE: Finish times are different for each week: Week 1: Saturday, July 15 from 12:30 to 4:30 Week 2: Saturday, July 22 from 12:30 to 3:00 Don't have your own loom yet? No worries, we can provide you with a loom that you will be able to take home and work on your project, provided you leave us with a fully refundable deposit. Yarn is included and students are encouraged to choose their colours (and wind yarn, if applicable) ahead of time - please contact the shop for more details. No experience required. Please note: Student cancellations less than 2 weeks prior to the class will not be refunded.
