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 various 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. Our first activity will be to create a small woven sample on a cardboard loom. Then we will explore the Inkle loom, used for weaving  thin strips of material and bands. Lastly, there will be 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 even after the class if they so 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.
