ABOUT THE CLASS:

Work with Seattle-based Fiber Artist Mandy Greer, as she teaches you her own style of rake loom knitting on a handmade lap loom.

This class is a series of 4 videos that have been edited from a previous live Zoom class, and the online classroom includes directions to build a loom, as well as other printable resources.

Recycled T-shirt Giant Cowl Workshop

FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS, really! No previous hand-work experience required.

In this workshop you will learn to create a giant Cozy Cowl by recycling old t-shirts into yarn, and ‘knitting’ them on a lap loom into a super fun and one-of-a-kind wearable fiber piece!

Maybe even, you'll feel just a little bit more like Lenny Kravitz when you slip this baby around your neck! It's the truth!

And since you'll own your own loom, you can make a ga-zillion for all your besties, trying out all kinds of knit or stretchy reclaimed fabrics.

The Process

Using handmade looms ( limited amount you can buy here) that are adaptations of a childhood craft called spool knitting — rake looms from Germany date back to 1535 – I’ll be leading you in this incredibly meditative process that can turn your junkiest t-shirts into super posh fashion!

We’ll be investigating slow process, re-thinking throw-away culture, and re-examining self-esteem via self-sufficiency rather than purchasing power. You can turn all your old t-shirts into cozy cowls, or spring neckpieces, net shopping bags, or a ton of other ideas you come up with.

The process is easy and relaxing.

I'm selling a few remaining used teaching looms for a discounted price and I have three new looms as well. The new looms would take 5 days to ship out.
