Create your own handwoven circular wall hanging in an inspired, fun atmosphere. You’ll learn the basics of weaving on a circular loom (which becomes the finished frame for easy hanging!), receive 2 hours of hands-on instruction and plenty of ideas and encouragement. Frames are pre-warped for time, but you’ll receive a demo in class for future weaving. Instructional worksheet + simple supplies included to borrow for further exploration and weaving. BYOY (bring your own worsted thru chunky yarn) encouraged, and alternative/upcycled fibers if you’d like.

Included with materials fee: pre-warped metal circular frame which will later become frame for easy hanging (approx 10” in diameter), embroidery needle, simple 2 pg. instructional guide, borrowing access to simple tools in class, and access to yarn bar (a variety of fibers I’ll bring to classroom).
