Skills you’ll learn:

Have you dabbled in weaving and want to learn more? Did you take the Woven Wall Hanging introductory class but are dying to try new techniques? Then this is the perfect class for you! Building on a foundation of basic frame loom tapestry weaving knowledge, students will be taught how to create vertical stripes, negative space and fluffy loops! Having these skills in any weavers repertoire will open doors to so many new, creative projects!
Students must know how: to warp a frame loom, to create rya knots (fringe), to secure tails of yarn, to plain weave, the difference between slit & hatched seams, to weave shapes (squares & triangles, circles NOT required to know), and to take their weaving off the loom.
Class fee includes a handmade tapestry needle and frame loom (or use your own if you’ve already taken the intro class at Perennial)!
This is a live virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom, and participants will be emailed information about how to participate prior to the class. You will be able to pickup a kit of supplies, including a handmade frame loom, tapestry needle, warp thread, and a selection of yarns (please include a note about color palette in your order). This kit may be picked up on Thursday, February 11 or Friday, February 12 from 11a-5pm, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange another time. You will need to provide your own scissors.
