About This Class

Are you ready to jump into deeper weaving waters and graduate from a cardboard loom? Want a woven project you're proud to hang on your wall? Ready to get really familiar with a few fundamental stitches that will take you where you want to go with your woven designs?

DIY Woven Art author, Rachel Denbow, designed this project-based class for the weaving novice with step-by-step instructions that are easy to digest so you no longer have to figure it out the hard way. You'll learn how to warp your loom, add plain weave, utilize rya knots, incorporate soumak, create shapes, and a few important finishing steps to get your work off your loom and onto your wall. We'll also work through tips on choosing colors, a basic overview of yarn weights and varieties, and a few troubleshooting tips in case you get hung up along the way.

Don't have your own frame loom? Rachel shares a simple and inexpensive way to create a sturdy loom to finish this project as well as household items you can use in place of weaving tools to get started.
