About This Class


Join us on our journey as we will learn about the age old craft of weaving with our own modern twist. No experience is nessesary as we explore the foundation of weaving and create a strong understanding of the basics to this craft. Weaving is a truly relaxing way to use your hands and make an end product that you are proud of. We will build on our newly found knowledge by exploring a handful of fun tips, tricks, and techniques, that will help students make unique woven pieces time and time again.

The first step in creating your own woven wall art is to source or create your own lap loom. A loom is the apparatus on which you weave. You may click here to check out a loom kit from my online store. You can use the coupon code: SKILLSHARE for 10% off your order. However, if you are not ready to invest in a loom just yet, I will walk you through the steps of making your own with items that you probably already have around the house.

Good for troubleshooting weavings I've done before too, I learned that my issues I've had have all been tension-related. Other than that, this class is a very clear and inspiring intro to weaving!

I am the maker + designer behind Savvie Studio. I marry traditional and modern making techniques to create home goods + accessories. I also love to put my degree in Art Education to use by hosting various workshops, primarily based around fiber craft. When I'm not teaching a workshop or working the in studio, I am typically playing with my two dogs, testing out a new salsa recipe, or planning out my next road trip.
