Adventures in Weaving ・ Kim Mirus・ Weaving
Discover how to weave your own unique pieces of fabric! We will explore floor looms, warps, wefts, and woven structures. Learn the exciting process of weaving on a loom from start to finish, from thread to cloth, as you prepare a warp, dress the loom, read a weaving draft, and weave! There will be ample opportunities to experiment with materials, colors, fibers, patterns, yarns, textures, and structures as you create a variety of samples and woven pieces. All levels welcome and beginners are especially encouraged.
