SOLD OUT | Introduction to Weaving on a Mini-Loom | Monday, February 28, 2022, 1-3 pm | $30 + HST + materials*
*You choose the mini loom from what I have in stock, plus the fibre bundle you want to work with: fibre bundles are $10 each, looms range from $18-$32*
In this class, you’ll learn how to create a small wall hanging or coaster as an introduction to weaving on a small loom. Indigo Hill carries mini looms made by the Canadian company Chip & Sparrow: these are fun, stylish, totally portable small looms designed for ease of use – perfect for beginner adults but also very useable by crafty kids. You choose the loom, and we’ll get you started on your first project, teaching you how to warp the loom, good practices for weaving, and how to finish your project to ready it for use or display. You’ll also choose the fibre bundle: we have both boldly coloured kits with a mix of textures and sparkly touches, as well as kits that are more subdued and tinted by natural dyes. After this initial project you can use your loom over and over again to make an infinite number of small woven items: small bags, pendants, bookmarks, garlands… It’s hard to stop once you’ve been bitten by the weaving bug!
