You don’t need fancy equipment to weave a beautiful piece of art. During this class, learn the basics of weaving using a circular loom made from an embroidery hoop. We will have fun getting creative with materials and learning about weaving in a circular shape, as well as introducing new textural techniques to embellish our circular wall hanging! Participants may bring some inspirational materials if they wish.
