Introduction to Tapestry Weaving with Local Fiber Artist and Historian, Helen Bower Jones

May 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| $49.00

Beginner workshop on how to start weaving with simple inexpensive equipment and yarn.

Learn basic hand-weaving and tapestry techniques — warping the loom, tabby weave, creating shapes, Rya knots, Soumak, and looped pile, and how to finish off your piece while making a mini-sampler wall hanging. Explore use of different fiber weights and textures.

Suitable for ages 16 & up. All materials and equipment will be provided, along with instructions for making your own frame loom at another time.
