Intro to Tapestry Weaving: A two-week class running on Mondays from 6-9pm; $125 all yarns included. Tapestry frames will be available for use, and can be purchased for an additional $55 (13" x 9"), or $65 (27" x 19").
In this course, you will learn to weave on a simple frame loom, using finger techniques to create your own one-of-a-kind handwoven piece: a small tapestry (approx. 10" x 14") to hang on your wall.
The entire project will be finished within class hours, and we will provide all the equipment for you to use for free. If you decide you'd like to do more, we'll sell you the Ashford weaving frames afterward.
