Project Description

Class Outline

During this class, we are going to learn how to:

- warp onto a loom

- construct a plain weave

- create unique shapes and patterns

- make tassels

- finish your weaving, take it off the loom

At the end of this, you will have a finished piece of woven wall art! I challenge you to incooperate at least two our of the three techniques that we learn in this class. For example, you can post a photo of a weaving with plain weave and with a shape, or you could post a plain weave with tassels, etc. Once you have completed your project, upload a photo to the project gallery. Let us know what struggles you had, what you enjoyed about the process, or what you hope to weave together next! I look forward to seeing your weavings!
