Handloom Weaving: Pattern + Texture

Saturday, May 7, 2016, 10 am-4 pm

A Workshop with Jamie Lea Berstch

3/21 - Tapestry Weaving with Jamie Berstch

Fee: $110/$99 members (all materials included and you receive a complete weaving kit, including a loom, to take home)
Registration: Registration is closed. Sign up for our e-list for information on future sessions.

Learn the basics of weaving on a frame loom, this time with an emphasis on pattern. We will build an understanding of weaving fundamentals, and then explore techniques to achieve texture and pattern as you embark on your own original piece--and begin your weaving adventures. If you've completed a project begun in one of our previous workshops, this is a good opportunity to start a new project.

The weaving process is a labor of love, and it is likely that your work will not be finished during the workshop. Rest assured, you will be able to take your new lap loom home with you, along with enough yarn and material to complete your first piece, an instruction booklet, a new weaving vocabulary, and a knowledge of the basic weaving stitches.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages.
