This Introduction to Weaving class covers the basics of weaving, including how to create shapes and transform them into a mountain landscape! We’ll use lap looms (which you can take anywhere!) to create a small woven tapestry. During the class, we’ll cover how to warp our looms as well as the basic weaving techniques, including twining, tabby, soumak, shapes, free-form, and rya. We’ll also use embroidery to put the finishing touches on our landscapes! Finally, we’ll learn how to clean the backside of our weaving project and you’ll have the option to finish them off using a hanging rod. Don’t have a loom or weaving materials? No worries! My Beginner’s Weaving Kit has everything you need to get started! Learn more in the Materials Section.
