In this Intro to Weaving class, learn the basics of tapestry weaving on a 14 inch frame loom with Caitlin Thomas of Studio Number Eight. Become familiar with all the tools and supplies you’ll need to start weaving on your own! We’ll cover the common terms and anatomy of a small lap loom and create your own woven wall hanging from start to finish! Experiment with different fibers to create basic shapes or try something more organic by incorporating unique materials like wool roving. Practice different knots to add to your weaving arsenal and discuss different techniques you can bring into your own unique piece!
Materials: included is your own wooden loom, yarn, and an instructional sheet.
