All Things Circular Weaving

March 26, 2020 – March 29, 2020

Emily Nicolaides

In this workshop students will learn about the techniques of circular weaving. These include how to turn an embroidery hoop into a loom and how to warp a hoop with an open center, as well as discovering basic tapestry weaving techniques. Your end goal is to acquire various approaches to finishing your own circular woven wall hanging. Participants will also work with a variety of yarns to create tons of texture. Students have the option to bring their own yarn of any fiber and weight. You will leave class with at least two finished wall hangings. Open to all levels.
