Instructor: Susan Weaver
Skill Level: All skill levels
Weave a bit of nature into a wall hanging! Gather flowers stalks and other thin branches in your yard and weave them into a wall hanging! Along with cotton, linen, and hemp, a variety of interesting yarns will be available to play with color and texture on the loom. Students can create a lovely open wall hanging or, if they choose, a firmer, tighter textile. Looms and all supplies needed will be provided for this beginner, one-day weaving workshop. No experience necessary!
Note: Students should bring their own scissors and tape measures. Please, no perfume. This workshop will be conducted in the instructor’s Lancaster-based home studio and there may be a cat walking through.
