Class: To Weave or Knot: Scrap-Be-Little Pumpkins! (ages 16+)

November 13, 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Who said weaving has to be flat? Join us to explore loom weaving and weave an adorable wee pumpkin to celebrate the harvest! Students will learn how to construct and setup of a pocket-sized, backstrap loom handmade from simple materials, as well as how to select the right fibers for the job. No weaving experience necessary. Technical weaving terms, large loom comparisons, and other pocket loom project suggestions will be shared throughout the class in order to prepare you for future weaving adventures! All materials provided.
