Beginner Tapestry Weaving : Woven Wall Hanging

  • Sky Office #1602, 10350 122St Edmonton Canada (map)

Woven wall hangings are taking over walls everywhere and if you're into them you might as well make your own.  These small looms are lightweight and portable so you can take them with you on that summer road trip. A great way to get into weaving, learn some basics and then the possibilities are endless!  

GUEST INSTRUCTOR: Kim McCollum @slowlifestudio

PROJECT: Students will weave a small woven wall hanging. 

DISCUSSION: Techniques covered include loom set up, plain weave, crochet-weaving, shape building, looped rya knotting and a variety of fringe options.  You will get a chance to experiment with roving and other unconventional materials.  This workshop will end with a discussion about finishing and hanging your piece.
