Continuing Your Freestyle Weaving Journey

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 an approachable and easy-to-use two-harness floor loom designed for this type of weaving. Supplemental warps, inlaid and interlocked shapes, knots, loops, and more creative choices await. Students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore–and to practice imperfection! Students will take home what they weave.

Prerequisite:  Class is designed for students who have a little weaving experience on any type of loom and want to add to their existing skill set. (Students who have taken a previous freestyle-weaving workshop with this or another instructor are encouraged to sign up.) However, students who have never woven before but need this class in their lives nonetheless should find the learning curve easy to climb. 

Skill Level Required:  All levels welcome

Homework:  None

Materials Info

A material fee of $60 will be collected by the instructor who will invoice registered students via PayPal in advance  and will expect payment to be made no later than the day prior to class.  It includes use of 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:  Nothing.   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.

NOTE:  There is no onsite ATM on Thursday and Friday.
