Workshop: Introduction to Weaving [2 hours]
Introduction to Weaving Workshop
Indulge your love of fibre in our Introduction to Weaving workshop.
Skill Level: Beginner
This class is designed to have you up and weaving from the moment you walk through our door.
Each student will also take home one of our , a Yarn Starter Pack full of gorgeous yarns and a CSD Tote Bag to hold it all in!
Using our pre-prepared, newly designed CSD Frame Loom and a set of our unique CSD Weaving Tools, we will walk you through the basic weaving techniques you will need to get weaving. With this knowledge of the warp & weft and working from a selection of over 200+ (and growing!) yarns to add to your Yarn Starter Pack, you will create your very own modern wall hanging or textile art.
This class would suit those new to weaving. You will learn techniques from both modern tapestry weaving such as Soumak and Rya knots as well as classic hand-weaving techniques such as plain weave (tabby) and ribs. Working on your own loom and at your own pace, you should have plenty of time to complete your project. However if not, you can arrange to rent or purchase the Frame Loom, bringing your materials home with you to complete your project at your leisure.
