April 14th -15th, 11am-2pm
In this two-day workshop, taught by maker and fiber artist, April Camlin, students will build a nail-frame tapestry loom and learn some basic tapestry weaving techniques. Students will leave the class having built a loom they can continue to use, and we will cover how to set up, execute, and finish a woven project.
For those students who are interested in weaving but do not wish to do any woodworking, you may sign up for Day Two Only, and a loom frame will be provided for you to use and take home.
Day One: Woodworking!
Students will learn how to use the table saw to make a bridle joint frame. This frame will become your loom, and these same woodworking techniques can be used to make frames for all sorts of other applications. At the end of day one, students will have cut their parts, assembled, and glued up their frames.
Day Two: Weaving!
Students will learn a variety of basic tapestry techniques including how to set up, execute, and finish a woven project. Students take home their weaving projects and their looms.
No prerequisites. All skill levels welcome. All materials and tools provided.
Two-day workshop: $125
One-day, weaving-only workshop (includes a loom made by WOO): $75
