2/24/19- Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

100.00

Sunday February 24, 2019

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM CST

Materials : Metal Lap Loom + All Weaving Supplies Provided

A sampling of snack from local shops / bakeries + refreshments will be available throughout the workshop.

Come learn the basics of weaving alongside a humble herd of curious critters.

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

We will begin by learning how to (warp) prepare the loom. Basic weaving techniques including tabby weave, creating tassels, tapered braids, and ways to add texture will be covered. I will also share tips and tricks to finish your masterpiece and remove it from the loom.

At some point during the day we will take a break to meet the alpacas and explore the farm.

You will go home with your woven masterpiece, a metal lap loom, naturally dyed fiber samples for future creations, and a printout with step-by-step instructions + additional weaving resources.

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

I am offering an Introduction to Natural Dyes Workshop on the previous day (2.23) where we will be dyeing all materials for weaving.

The location for this workshop is in the front room of the farmhouse, originally built in the late 1860s. Please join us as we continue to add to the rich history of this gathering space while enjoying the company of like minds, fresh ideas, and the warmth of the fireplace.

*All are welcome, no previous experience is necessary

(Space is limited to 8 participants)

 *Due to the time intensive preparation that is required, all workshop sales are final. Tickets may be transferred to another attendee in case of any last minute changes in plans.
