Weaving 201 is designed for those with some weaving experience who wish to dive into designing and creating woven tapestry. To support weavers on this journey, Dianne will review techniques, answer your questions, and discuss a variety of designing techniques.
This workshop will give you the opportunity to experiment with various methods and materials. A great way to continue your weaving journey! Just bring your enthusiasm!
If you have ideas and images you wish to work with, bring them along!
We will be working on 13” x 17” frame looms and learn how to warp the loom and use ‘butterflies’ (yarn bundles). Dianne will offer a variety of beautiful yarns for your weaving pleasure including a selection of her hand dyed and hand spun yarn, unspun wool, and even some strips of fabric and ribbon yarns to play with. You should be well along the way of creating your masterpiece by the end of the day!
This workshop is ideal for those with basic weaving experience or those who have taken one of Dianne’s beginner workshops.
Bring your sense of adventure, willingness to play with design, colour and texture!
Please note: $30 kit fee to be paid to Dianne at the start of the workshop.
