5.5.18 - Introduction to Weaving + Waterfall Hike to Foster Falls

115.00

Saturday, May 5 2018

10:00 AM - 2:30 PM CST + additional time at the waterfall

(feel free to bring a towel / cushion to sit on)

Materials : Metal Lap Loom + All Weaving Supplies Are Provided

Lunch: Pack a lunch and plenty of water. I will have extra snacks to share.

Come learn the basics of weaving alongside a gorgeous waterfall!

In this workshop you will learn the basics of weaving on a small metal frame loom using locally sourced wool, alpaca, cotton, linen, silk, and hemp.

Meet at the pavilion by the Foster Falls Trailhead at 10:00 AM

We will begin by learning how to (warp) prepare the loom. I will cover a few basic techniques including tabby weave, creating tassels, and ways to add texture. Once everyone gets the hang of the process, we will pack up our works in progress and take the short trek down to the bottom of Foster Falls. As we arrive at the base of the falls we will gather again and continue weaving, using the gorgeous natural surroundings as inspiration.

Before we depart I will share tips and tricks to finish your masterpiece and remove it from the loom.

You will go home with your woven masterpiece and a handcrafted metal lap loom.

If you already have a yarn stash and are enthusiastic, please feel free to bring along any material you may have.

The location for this workshop - Foster Falls

498 Foster Falls Rd, Sequatchie, TN.

There is a steep hiking path (roughly 1 mile) that leads down to the base of the waterfall, accessed by a combination of stairs and uneven rocky trail. 

Please check several trail review websites if you are worried about making the trek down into the canyon. This is event is geared towards folks who are avid hikers and enjoy being outdoors.

If this isn't quite your thing (I'm looking at you, mom) worry not, I have weaving workshops scheduled at the farm as well!

 

(Space is limited to 8 participants)

** Workshop will happen rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, I will host the workshop at the farm and send detailed information by Friday, March 4 at 6 PM.

**  No refunds are offered although ticket exchanges are accommodated.
