Weaving with Texture

Back by popular demand!!

The best way to learn how to weave is to watch someone do it. Drawing from her experience as a fiber artist over the past 4 years, Ashton Zager has created an engaging workshop that will teach you how to weave your own weaving from start to finish. This class is of beginner level, but differs from her normal beginner class by focusing on texture instead of traditional flat weaving. We will be using a variety of fun materials such as rope and rug yarn. Weaving techniques covered will include: warping your loom, the tabby stitch, variations of complex tabby stitches and rya knots. No prior knowledge or skills are necessary!

WHAT YOUR TICKET PRICE INCLUDES:

Handmade wooden loom (that you get to keep!)

Metal tapestry needle

Enough fiber for 1 tapestry

3 hours of teaching
