Did you know you can take either Weaving I or Weaving II in any order you like? You can. Both workshops teach the same basic set of skills - and add a different set of texture techniques to them. Sign up for one (or both) and remember you can always take a class again to refresh your skills!
Super limited. 8 spots available - register here !
A new addition to our class line up, this workshop is designed to add to your tool box of skills but still be beginner friendly. Taught by Hillary Bird of Wabi Sabi Textile Company, this class covers the basics like plain weave, rya, and shapes. Then, Hillary shows you how to add texture with pile (fluff like carpets), soumack (looks like a braid), and hem stitching. Finishing techniques to complete your piece are also on the menu.
A great value at 65.00, all materials and tools are included, from a multitude of yarn to your very own loom. If you have taken a weaving class with us before and have your own loom already, please select the "I have my own loom" ticket ($45.00) when you register for the discounted rate.
Registration closes 24 hours before class begins. Last minute registration? Send us a note and we'll see if we can fit you in!
Throughout her life, Hillary's creative endeavors have always come back to fiber. She dabbled in countless types of artist processes, but it wasn't until the first time she picked up a loom that everything came together. Her years spent as a seamstress paired with her love of color and design naturally evolved into a passion for weaving. In the future, she has plans to weave fabric and rugs, which require different types of looms...something Hillary is always happily collecting! As a member of the Weavers' Guild of St. Louis, she is continually looking for new ways to learn her craft and fiber friends to share knowledge with!
