Woven Wall Hanging With Made By Erin Elizabeth

24 March 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Spend an afternoon with Made By Erin Elizabeth creating your very own woven wall hanging.

This workshop will focus on TEXTURE. We will be using wool roving, yarns, and other materials to create a woven wall hanging that packs a punch.

Some of the techniques we will explore are:
– Basic tabby stitch
– Rya knots
– Loops
– Soumac
– Weaving with roving

All materials will be provided, including a basic loom that you can take home. Your final weaving dimensions will be approximately 6″ x 14″

No previous weaving experience necessary.

Pre-registration is required as space is limited.
