Introduction to Tapestry Weaving


Saturday Afternoon 1-4.

Learn a little weaving with Melissa of Hello Purl. In this class you will learn the basics of tapestry weaving and create a small woven wall hanging. Using a little loom during class you will learn to warp it and weave it. Basic weaving techniques will be demonstrated so you can replicate them. Finished pieces will vary in size/length with how fast you can weave. We will attach the completed woven wall hangings to a branch or dowel.
