Tiny Weavings Virtual Workshop - July 18
Looking for unique accessories or handmade gift ideas?! Look no further than this tiny weaving workshop!
In this virtual workshop, we’ll create a small piece of fiber artwork and tap into the calming and mindful process of weaving. You’ll learn how to warp the loom, create a plain weave, and turn your project into a necklace, a brooch or bag pin, or a hanging decoration. You’ll have enough materials to make two weavings, one during the workshop, and one to continue your creative practice in your own time.
Saturday, July 18, 2020 - 11-1pm CST via zoom call (link will be sent approx. 24 hours ahead of class time)
