Mixed Media Weaving on a Simple Frame Loom

$ 185  


Learn many techniques to create exciting and unique weavings, made on a simple frame loom. You’ll use yarn, string, fabric, jewelry parts and all sorts of fun embellishments to create a textured and lively piece. You’ll also learn to make tassels, pompoms, and fringes to add on to the body and edges of your weaving. No weaving or art experience is necessary to take this workshop, or to make fabulous pieces of art. Perfect for beginning through advanced artists.
