ONSITE: Frame Weaving with Unconventional Materials
Anything can be a thread and anyone can be weaver. This class is designed for anyone who has a desire to weave in a creative and artistic way of making. The instruction will focus on methods for warping and weaving with a frame loom, and traditional tapestry weaving techniques. Gather mixed materials from nature or in your home. We will create one-of-a-kind tiny tapestries with these unconventional materials, asking ourselves what can be a thread?
- Beginners are welcome!
