What you'll learn in this weaving class:

Catch weaver fever! Learn tapestry weaving as you design and make your own woven wall hangings in this fun and relaxing three-hour workshop. Total beginners welcome!

In this class you'll learn:
  • How to make a simple DIY loom from chipboard
  • How to set up the warp thread on your loom
  • How to do weaving stitches including plain weave, soumak, and rya knots
  • How to add fringe and tassels
  • How to incorporate a variety of fiber weights and textures
  • How to plan and execute your own design
You'll leave with a small weaving (approximately 7" wide) and the know-how to create more woven pieces on your own!

Registration includes the materials necessary to make a small wall hanging, including a DIY chipboard loom, warp thread, yarn, and a wooden dowel for hanging.

Note: If you would like to bring a little of your own yarn, especially if you have colors you know you want to use in your weaving, go for it! Worsted and bulky yarns work best for this project. We will provide enough yarn for everyone, but if you have anything special you want to incorporate, feel free to bring it along!

Refund Policy

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!
