with Kathleen Cook!
In this 3-day intensive, you will be guided, start to finish, in creating a hand-woven, one-of-a-kind textile! Using simple upright looms, we will explore the workings of the loom, various weaving techniques, cultural and historical significance, all while crafting your own unique tapestry!
Day 1 - Warp your loom, prepare your design, choose colors (predetermined palette), prepare your weaving yarns, and begin weaving using basic tapestry techniques.
Day 2 - We will expand your repertoire of weaving techniques.
Day 3 - We will address issues and questions that may have arisen while weaving on your own, complete your project and instruct you on removing your tapestry from the loom.
Class cost is $150 for the workshop -- Friday, July 19 (10-3), Saturday, July 20 (10-4) and Saturday, July 27 (10-4) with a 30-minute lunch break during each session (bring your own or grab something close by). We want you to get the most out of every minute!
Kathleen is a Ramona resident with nearly 20 years of weaving experience.
