A One-Day, Hands-On Introduction to Weaving

Have you always wanted to weave on a loom? Do you know a warp from a weft? Do you know a twill from a tabby? Here is your chance to try weaving for yourself!

This class is for beginners who would like to learn how to weave on a floor loom. No experience needed. The looms will be set up and ready for weaving. Students will learn about looms and how they work, then weave a small runner or table mat.

Students should bring a lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.
