I am so excited to offer a Beginner’s Weaving Workshop at Mountain Run Farm on June 26th at 2pm! This is a 3-hr beginner’s weaving workshop where you will learn how to make your very own woven wall hanging. If weaving is something that you’ve always wanted to try but didn’t know where to start, this class will be a perfect first step. We will go over the basics together and various beginner techniques will be demonstrated on a larger loom to provide an opportunity for everyone to see, while gathered around a large table in our farm store nestled in the shadows of the Blue Ridge. This is a great opportunity to learn the fine fiber art of weaving, while snacking and sipping on some treats amongst fellow budding weavers.
We will start with how to gather supplies, choose yarns, and set up your loom. You will learn how to warp your loom, various weaving techniques with demonstrations, and finishing. The class will be broken up into stages with demonstrations on a large loom for all techniques, along with plenty of time to work on your own weaving, enjoy snacks + bevs, and socialize!
What you will get (besides an afternoon of fun):
– repurposed handmade wooden lap loom (made by a local carpenter)
– tapestry needle + scissors + hanging rod
– warping thread
– multi-colored yarns
– snacks + bevs
– project tote bag
– step-by-step instructions to get started on your very own weaving and complete at home
Plus, 10% of all proceeds will go straight to The Surfrider Foundation’s Campaign: ‘Protect our Atlantic’ to help stop negative governmental impact on our local ocean.
Workshops are $75 with a very limited class size, so don’t hesitate to sign up here today!
