Weaving 101 Workshop with Lucy Poskitt
Saturday, October 22 from 1 pm to 4:30 pm
In this 3.5 hour workshop you’ll learn the essentials of frame-loom weaving: how to set up your loom, the mechanics of weaving, different ways of creating texture and pattern and how to finish and remove your completed piece. Along with instruction there will be plenty of time during this class to begin (and maybe even finish!) your very first woven wall-hanging.
Your class fee includes everything you need to begin and continue weaving (and yes! all of this is yours to keep): a beautiful locally-made maple frame loom, five essential tools, a selection of yarn and fibre curated by SweetGeorgia and an extensive booklet of step-by-step weaving techniques and resources.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served, please notify us of any allergies.
When: Saturday, October 22 from 1 pm to 4:30 pm
Where: SweetGeorgia Yarns Studio
