CLASS DESCRIPTION
Learn to create exciting and unique weavings made on a simple frame loom that you’ll make in class. Students will build and string their looms, use yarn and fabric strips to build the main structure, and add lace, string, ribbon, shells, sticks, buttons, jewelry parts and other embellishments of your choice.

Along with learning a variety of regular and random stitches and techniques, students will also learn to make tassels, pompoms, and fringes to add to your pieces. Once you have completed your weaving masterpiece, you will learn how to tie off and remove the completed weaving from the loom, secure it, and hang it. 

Whether you prefer symmetrical or random shapes, flat surfaces or undulating textures, realistic or abstract designs, you'll gain the knowledge and skills needed to produce the effects you choose.

There will be examples of weavings, many demonstrations, tips, ongoing Q & A, gaining inspiration from each other, and ongoing weaving throughout the workshop.

No weaving or art experience is necessary to take this workshop, or to make fabulous and unique pieces of art! By the end of class, you will have your new weaving(s) to hang on the wall, as well as your reusable loom, and the skills to continue this fun, relaxing, versatile, and rewarding art form.
