Description:  Weave your joy! Maybe you’ve done a little weaving in the freestyle world, and you find it speaks to your heart. Now you’re ready to learn some new techniques to add to your freespirited toolbox as you continue down your weaving path. Invite this workshop into your life! Students will learn various ways to add creativity and personal expression to warp and weft as they weave the fabric of their heart on a highly approachable and easy-to-use two-harness floor loom. Supplemental warps, interlaid and interlocked shapes, rya knots, loops and worms, and more creative choices await! Students will take home what they weave.

Items Included:  Use of pre-warped two-harness floor loom; use of associated tools (shuttles, bobbins, etc.); access to and use of a wide variety of different weaving materials, including yarn in various fibers, colors, and textures, embroidery floss, fabric scraps, fiber, trim, beads, wire, Mylar, etc. Each student will also get a bag of fibery treasures to keep; these can be used in workshop, in a future weaving, or both.

Student Provides:  No participant-provided materials required; instructor will provide all necessary tools and materials. If students want to bring something personally meaningful to them to incorporate into their weaving if possible, they're welcome–indeed, encouraged–to do so. Some past examples: specialty paper, pieces of jewelry (this is a fun use for unmatched earrings and stray pendants), dyed or undyed fiber, leftover quantities of treasured yarn too small to knit or crochet into a finished item. Otherwise, students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore--and to practice imperfection!

 

Prerequisites: No special skills required. Some prior experience with weaving on some sort of loom is useful. That said, students who have never woven before but need this workshop in their lives nonetheless should find the learning curve easy to climb. Workshop open to students 8 years old and up; students must be tall enough to reach the floor pedals on the looms and able to focus for the duration of the workshop.


Minimum Age of Participants: 8  (under 12 must have adult present)
