Introduction to Weaving with Lucy Jennings
If you’ve never woven before, or maybe just a little, this is the perfect class for you. You’ll learn how to get your loom ready for weaving, basic weaves, and how to take the finished weaving off the loom and attach it to the rod for hanging. By the end of the day you’ll complete a wall hanging, but best of all, you’ll be confident to try out new projects on your own.
Students need to bring a loom (at least 5 x 10 inches) and a tapestry needle. A loom can also be purchased directly from the instructor (see the Optional Material Fee section below). The instructor will provide a variety of wool and specialty yarns, and a wood rod for hanging your weaving.
Children ages 13 and up are welcome to enroll in this workshop.
Date & Time
Saturday, May 30th from 9 am to 4 pm (with a one-hour lunch break)
Optional Material Fee
Students can purchase a loom kit directly from the instructor for $34.00 at the start of the workshop. The kit includes one 5 x 10 inch loom, three tapestry needles, one wooden weaving needle, and a bag. The kit can be viewed online at www.thecreativitypatch.com/collections/annie-looms/products/annie-loom.
