Create an original hand woven scarf in a weekend* at this beginners weaving workshop. We will meet from 10am-1pm on Saturday to learn the basics, choose yarn, and warp the loom. We should also be able to get you started weaving before you leave for the day so you can take your loom home and make some good progress before the next day. We will meet again on Sunday from 1pm-4pm to finish up our scarves.
*Formerly weave a scarf in a day. We learned our lesson. :)
You'll be able to start and finish a unique handwoven scarf for yourself or a gift for someone special!
You will be weaving on the Schacht Cricket 15" loom. This class is meant for beginners so even if you have ZERO weaving experience, you'll be able to complete this project. The most difficult part of the workshop will be selecting your yarns! The workshop price includes a $20 shopping credit and you'll be able to find something in that budget to complete your project. Of course, you're welcome to splurge on something a little more scrumptious for an additional charge. Have you ever felt our Merino/Yak/Silk blend?
Space is very limited as we only have 4 class looms available.We will guide you through the design process, warping the loom, and weaving. You should be able to finish by the end of the weekend, but if you are unable, you can come back to the store during open hours to work on it for free, take the loom home for $25/week, or purchase the loom outright at a 20% discount. It's possible that this could be your new favorite hobby!
Cost is $100 for the workshop and that includes:
- 6 hours of guided instruction over 2 days
- $20 yarn credit
- snacks & drinks
- use of our looms
Suitable for beginners as well as those who have woven previously.
