Instructor:Liza Q Wirtz

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 class 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 SAORI 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.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED:  Beginner with some experience

PREREQUISITE:  No prerequisites. A little prior experience with weaving on some sort of loom is useful. That said, students who have never woven before but need this class in their lives nonetheless are encouraged to sign up and should find the learning curve easy to climb.

Materials Info

MATERIAL FEE:  A material fee of $65 will be invoiced by the instructor via PayPal before the workshop.  It includes:   use of pre-warped SAORI 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 class, in a future weaving, or both.

STUDENTS MUST BRING:  N/a; 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.

We also suggest bringing a battery operated light should you need additional lighting.


NOTEThere is no onsite ATM on Thursday and Friday.
