Weaving 101

Free-Style Weaving

Date(s): August 3rd, 2016, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Have you ever wanted to paint with yarns on a loom and make a unique and personal piece? Marie-France will teach you the basics of free-style weaving on an already warped loom, including a few "saori" style techniques, while you craft a woven wall hanging! Come and enjoy our relaxed weaving atmosphere and play around with colour and texture! No experience is necessary and all supplies are included! If you would like to bring your own rigid heddle loom to the class, please let us know beforehand, so that we can provide you with warping instructions. Please note: Student cancellations less than 2 weeks prior to the class will not be refunded.
