Tapestry Weaving Workshop

Create your own handwoven wall hanging in an inspired and relaxing atmosphere. You’ll learn the basics of weaving on a lap loom, receive 4 hours of hands-on instruction and plenty of ideas and encouragement. Plus, you can take home your loom kit for further exploration and weaving. BYOY (bring your own yarn) encouraged, and alternative/upcycled fibers if you’d like.

Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages - no experience necessary!

Materials: Loom kit and yarn is included in the cost of the class. BYOY encouraged, but not mandatory (bring your own yarn - emphasis on using up your scrap bin yarn/ little balls leftover from finished/abandoned projects to have the best color selection). Pen to jot down ideas, beverage/snacks if desired.
