About the Event
Come learn the basics of weaving, using naturally dyed wool (made by Gail herself) and elements from nature, such as dried flowers and leaves, to create a one-of-kind tapestry for hanging in your favorite nook. Participants will learn how to warp a loom and employ various weaving techniques to make their own tapestry weaving.
No experience is necessary. All materials will be provided, including a selection of naturally dyed yarn made with madder, indigo, weld, logwood and more.
FEE: $55 / participant + $15 materials fee
This weaving session is four hours long to allow everyone sufficient time to complete a finished piece that is approximately 8 x 10". Breaks are encouraged anytime after the first hour of the session; participants are also welcome to leave before the end of the session if they complete their piece before the end of the session.
