Instructor: Q w/ Fold Out Cat

Weave your heart! Learn to weave freestyle and free-spirited on a simple, easy-to-use floor loom. Honor your own inner sense of beauty and truth as you play with color, texture, and technique, and come away with a unique piece of woven art that reflects your creative spirit (yes, you absolutely do have one!). Students will learn the basic skills of freestyle weaving on a highly approachable two-harness floor loom. The class will emphasize play, experimentation, and individual exploration of color and texture in the service of personal expression; a few simple weaving techniques will be taught along the way. No participant-provided materials required: instructor will provide all tools and materials. If students want to bring something personally meaningful to them to incorporate into their weaving if possible, they're welcome--indeed, encouraged--to do so. Otherwise, students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore--and to practice imperfection!

Class is truly intended to be open to anyone who wants to try freestyle weaving, from the experienced weaver to the person who’s never touched a loom before. Class open to students 8 years old and up.

Students must be tall enough to reach the floor pedals on the looms and able to sit on a slightly padded keyboard bench and focus for the duration of the class (don’t worry, the instructor will require regular stand-up breaks!).

    Skill Prerequisite: No previous experience with weaving required (though experienced weavers are as welcome as complete novices).

    Ages: 8+

    Supplies: Included in Class Cost: Yarn.

    Additional Supplies Needed: None.

    Homework: None.
