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!
Please select a ticket and loom option from the menu below. There's no difference in the kinds of tickets, but this set up allows you to buy multiple spots in a class or, just purchase one for a friend! If you have taken a weaving class with us before or have your own loom, please select the "I have my own loom" ticket ($50.00) when you register. If you need a loom, registration is $70.00.
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 - a finishing technique to complete your piece.
All materials and tools included, from a multitude of yarn to your very own loom. We are super excited to collaborate with local maker Collin Garrity for the frame looms for the workshop!
Registration closes 48 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!
