Learn how to build a simple loom and start weaving your own fabric! Let your creativity come loose and weave yourself into your fabric.
Humans have been weaving fibers into fabric for thousands of years. Weaving is a highly diverse, complex, and refined skill and art, and is practiced in cultures all over the world. So many things we use today are made of a woven fabric – clothing, blankets, curtains, mattresses, seat cushions, bags, rugs, tarps, shade cloth, and much more. Have you ever wondered how it’s done or wanted to weave your own design? In this class, you will learn about the construction of a simple strap loom and start a weaving project to take home. No experience necessary! Bring your own yarn and scissors if you want. Let your creativity come loose and weave yourself into your fabric!
