Weaving 101 (Mon)
Tickets at $165.00
Learn the essentials of tapestry / frame loom weaving in this 3 hour workshop with textile artist Lucy Poskitt.
During this hands-on class you’ll learn 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 pieces. You’ll leave this class with an understanding of the fundamentals of tapestry weaving so that you can confidently develop your own individual and contemporary weaving practices. Along with instruction there will be plenty of time during this class to begin 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 frame loom, essential tools, a selection of beautiful yarns generously provided by SweetGeorgia and an extensive booklet of step-by-step weaving techniques and resources.
Materials required to bring: a pair of small scissors or snips.
