About This Class

2193fb3f

In this class, we will create a unique handwoven necklace from start to finish by hand.

This is a great introduction to weaving course as we will be working on a small scale and can be accomplished in little time. We will cover materials (DIY and purchased), how to weave with examples of different stitches, adding fringe, and attaching chain. This project has unlimited possibilities for customization, is great for gifts, and requires no prior experience with weaving. Have fun!
