Hosted by Light Gallery + Alison Broersma
In this weaving workshop, Alison will teach you the basics of tapestry weaving using our plentiful variety of yarn and wool! You will learn beginner-level weaving skills such as how to warp a loom, weave with a needle, hand weave with thicker yarns, and how to make a decorative fringe.
To hone your new skills, you will work on completing a wall hanging, which measures 8" X 10" in size. Each wall hanging comes with a wooden dowel to insert across the top for easy hanging and beautiful wall display! Each student will leave with one finished wall hanging, a handout with a recap of the skills, terms, and resources discussed in class, and the skill to design and produce additional weaving projects at home! Looms will be available for purchase for $30 after the class has concluded if you are interested.
Supplies Needed: None. We have done all the legwork of sourcing the hard-to-find yarns, wool style yarns, and a simple 8x10 wooden loom.
No artistic experience necessary, but encouraged for critique
