There are many aspects to the Flag Wool & Fiber Festival that are just not the same in a virtual environment, workshops being one. Every year, we look forward to connecting fiber artists with students in order for attendees to learn and develop their skills in a wide array of techniques, including weaving, knitting, basket making, natural dyeing and more.
While we can't replace the in-person experience of participating in a workshop, several of our workshop instructors have created short video tutorials that we will be sharing with you over the next week.
First up is workshop instructor Lucy Jennings. Lucy has created a series of short tutorials that will take you through the process of warping, weaving, and finishing on a tiny loom. Tiny looms are great for beginning weavers, as well as experienced weavers who want to enjoy a weaving practice on the go.
Lucy Jennings studied weaving at Northern Arizona University where she received an MA in Art Education. Her work has appeared in Handwoven magazine, and she has sold her handwoven clothing and beaded jewelry at local and national craft shows.
Lucy is an elementary school teacher and has been teaching kids to weave for over thirty years. She’s also taught at Mohave Community College and in workshops at her local yarn shop. You can find her weaving tutorials on her website, The Creativity Patch.
She lives in Kingman, Arizona where she has two dogs and too much yarn.
