Registration is closed

For ages 7 and up, a  perfect educational and unique arts activity for your summer! 

In this introductory workshop we will learn about looms and play with weaving techniques. Weaving has a rich history throughout all cultures, and is something we often don't realize plays a huge part in everyday life!     

We will explore the mechanics of several weaving methods. For one activity we will create a small woven sample on a cardboard loom. There will be a type of loom called an Inkle loom set up and ready for weaving a thin band on. And lastly we will have table looms set up for everyone to try their hand at.

We endeavor to use easy to source materials in our activities so participants can continue practicing after the class if they wish.

This class is $30 per registrant. All materials are included. The class is 3 hours long and instructed by Weavers' and Spinners' guild member Julia.

A completed permission form must be submitted for each participant at the beginning of the class.

If the participant and yourself are both comfortable please complete and submit a photo release as well.

Permission forms are provided upon your arrival.
